The results of the phase II study of LDN in Crohn's were supposed to be release this last week.  The study is by Dr. Jill Smith of Penn State.  Does anyone know the results of this latest research and have a link???

There's a post on pg 2 by Writer, just the abstract which was presented this week.

LDN seems to be showing similar result percentages as standard treatments.

In fact Dr. Smith, et all have yet to actually publish, they just presented it at the Digestive Disease conference in New Orleans this week.
