2017 MAP Conference: The Pathogenesis of Crohn’s Disease
by Dr. Gilles R.G. Monif
Dr. Monif, the President of Infectious Disease Incorporated, presents his proposed mechanism on how MAP causes Crohn’s disease. Two factors: infection by MAP and subsequent loss of immunological tolerance, and repeated exposure to and adherence of MAP, combine to produce disease. A hypothetical debate between Robert Koch and Louis Pasteur about whether MAP is the cause of Crohn’s disease delves into the proof issues.
Questions and issues discussed include:
The loss of immunological tolerance in Crohn’s disease.
What can we do to prevent and heal Crohn’s disease?
The role of the microbiome in IBD.
How do we fix a broken immune template?
Dietary and lifestyle changes to improve Crohn’s disease.
What role does genetics play in Crohn’s disease?
