Here is a great article just published recently on CD:  A short read but worth it.
 
 
And here is Judy's opinion which I think I have to agree with as well:

So in my humble opinion, they're repeating what they've been saying for a long, long time.  They've just found some new genes associated with the disease, but are still not sure how they tie in to any of it, and our disease could be bacterial, genetic, and/or autoimmune.

Research is continuing...  someday, maybe others won't have to go thru the pain that we did.

That's my take on it too. I think it's more autoimmune than anything else; that's why a lot of the MS drugs are used for Crohn's. I hope and pray that they'll find something that really works befoe our son ends up needing surgery because of it.
