Has anyone heard of a new cocktail made up of 3 antibiotics that can put Crohns into remission? A friend of mine is a doctor and he said he had read about this but wasn't sure of all of the details. It hasn't been approved here in Canada yet but has been approved in the U.S. I haven't been able to find anything on it. Anyone hear about this?

I have not heard about that. Is this the same as the anti-MAP antibiotic cocktail? The only recently mentioned antibiotic I know of is Xifaxan, which is a single drug.
