I stumbled across this while looking for lead pipe syndrome..... I know that a lot of it is already known, & since they don't metnion tnf blockers for trtmnt, not sure how old it is. But I found the pathology & anatomy stuff fascinating- and very easy to understand for the laymen.

I added this link to our UC resources thread so we'll always be able to find it and direct new members. (If you haven't looked at the links there, you'll find they have a lot of great information available.)
