A bit off topic. Saw this the other day, thought you might find it interesting.
The poster said:
"Research finds IBD drugs 5-ASA, methotrexate and 6-MP have anti-MAP activity"
"I came across this interesting article which theorizes that some IBD medications are really anti-MAP drugs: "5-ASA inhibits MAP growth in culture. We posit that, unknowingly, the medical profession has been treating MAP infections since sulfasalazine’s introduction in 1942."
