Almost every time I am sick with an infection or cold my UC symptoms are almost non-existent. I have had several infections this year, including one that led to a tonsillectomy. While I had that bad infection and while recovering from surgery I didn't even feel like I had UC. I couldn't tell if it was because of the antibiotics or because my immune system actually had a real bacteria/virus to fight off and didn't need to attack my colon. I don't know enough about how immune systems work to make a conclusion. It didn't make me go into remission though, because the symptoms always come back. It's interesting you noticed the same thing. Glad you're feeling good! I've never heard of Klacid...it's sounds hardcore.

Very interesting theory from across waters (i'm from the midlands). I've just had hookworm larvea into my body which you could say works on your theory. Hookworms cause inflammation in the body and then the immune system kicks in to regulate the immune response which as a side effect also regulates the overly-active immune system that causes UC .

Yeah I agree. In fact Anti - Body Theory works on pretty much the same principle as this. I may be onto something here. This could make me rick I tells ya...rich!...er....in the interests of science of course!
