Has anyone heard about the development of this drug presently in the pipeline? It's based on research suggesting that the bacterium Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis (MAP) is connected to Crohn's disease, though the statistics do not appear strong. In addition, there is an anti-MAP vaccine in the works in the United Kingdom, involving two different vaccines administered in various doses. If successful in studies and trials, it is predicted to be available in 5-10 years. Curious to know if there has been any buzz about this in the extended IBD communities.
