I had never heard of it before.
Somebody said...
Valbonne, France, April 29, 2010 – TxCell SA, a French biotechnology company developing autologous cell-based therapies using Type 1 T-regulatory lymphocytes (Tr1) for the treatment of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, today announced positive preliminary results from the ongoing Phase I/IIa clinical trial regarding OvaSave(R), an investigational new drug, in patients with severe and refractory Crohn’s disease. Preliminary results from the study showed that OvaSave(R) is well-tolerated and that an encouraging efficacy signal has been observed.

BTW, does refractory mean difficult to treat?

stubborn might be a more positive spin on it.
