Why do eye infections remain in the eye? Why do any infection stay where it is? It's the same for UC. It's the nature of the beast. It could have something to do with the genetic component of UC too. Researchers have discovered a defective gene in people with Uc, so maybe this gene controls the extent of inflammation and damage. If I am not mistaken, don't quote me here, this defective gene is similiar in both Uc and Cd except that there are some differences in between the two. I know I've read this somewhere but I can't remember where - it's been a while.
