This presentation by a Dr. Behr to the CCFC is really great. This is part 1 or maybe 6 or so--I've forgotten. Dr. Behr does a great job of explaining MAP in layman's terms.
Also on youtube, you can search for interviews of John Hermon-Taylor, a MAP researcher in the UK.
Here's an article from the UK from September where they have begun testing their herds due to the high incidence of Crohn's there:
crazy_daizy, if they are really testing your specimen for MAP, be sure and get the name of the lab which did the testing. It's my understanding that there is only one lab in the US capable of testing properly for MAP, though this was about 18 months ago when I was looking into it. I'm sorry, I don't remember the name of the lab...
I've also communicated with Dr. Lipton in the past. I'm glad to hear she's still doing exceedingly well!
