This is old news and it's probably not the cause of Crohn's in most cases anyway.(As stated above, Crohn's and IBS are unrelated.)

I concur with Flux. There has been a lot of discussion about this approach for several years. There are 2 camps of doctors who disagree on the cause for Crohn's disease. This is just one approach.Crohn's disease is IBD and NOT the same as IBS.Jeff

The actual research paper didn't say that crohns and IBS were the same thing.They said that they had found MAP bacteria in crohns patients and IBS patients. It made a lot of sense to me, but seems to have a long way to go.There have been clinical trials running in Australian hospitals on antibiotics agaist this bug for at least3 years, so it must have a lot of credibility. Hopefully they will have some results soon. Gilly

The article never stated that IBS and Chron's are the same disease. It just said that the bacteria was found in 96% of people with Chron's and a significant number of people in IBS.
