I am part of a group of Crohn's sufferers whose mission is to raise funds to enable the Crohn's MAP Vaccine developed by Prof. John Hermon-Taylor (King's College London) to commence human trials. This Vaccine is targeted against the bacteria thought to cause Crohn's disease: Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP). The vaccine is designed to treat Crohn's disease and has the potential to be a Crohn's cure! The project currently on-going at King's College London will provide a new simple accurate test for MAP in humans for use in the vaccine trial. i am a champion for this cause because I have been successfully treated for MAP since 2008!
We are very grateful to Friends of Kings College London Association, Inc. for supporting this project.
Crohn's Disease is an aggressive form of inflammatory bowel disease affecting 1.2 million people in the USA. Numbers are increasing, especially in children. Symptoms include chronic abdominal pain, bloody diarrhea and weight loss. Up to 80% of sufferers will need surgery at some point in their lifetime. There is currently no cure.
We want to help change that. If you are a Crohn's sufferer who wants to make a difference then join us -YOUR VACCINE NEEDS YOU!
