A man with severe Crohn's interviews top experts in Crohn's in hopes for a cure including: a geneticist, Dr. Hermon-Taylor (the inventor of the MAP vaccine), A scientist running the UK hookworm clinical trials, and a patient who's been in long-term remission (dare I say cured?) after a stem cell transplant.

I saw it, it was pretty scary because this guy really has a rough time with his Crohns and got me thinking I don't want to be like that... but on the other hand, it is very promising to know that there are so many scientists working to find a cure!!!
