Treatment of MAP in a patient with Crohn’s Disease Followed by Disease Resolution
by Dr. Shoor Vir Singh
Dr. Singh is a Principal Scientist at the Indian Council of Agricultural Research. He was unable to present at the 2017 MAP Conference due to a prior commitment, but has kindly provided his presentation materials. The presentation begins with an overview of MAP in India, and progresses to a detailed case study of a Crohn’s disease patient whose stool sample tested positive for Indian bison type MAP. After a year of antibiotic treatment, his Crohn’s disease symptoms had abated and MAP testing was negative. The antibiotic treatment regimen is detailed in Dr. Singh’s presentation. The final portion of the presentation describes treatment and control strategies for MAP in India, including an indigenous bison-type vaccine that is now available.
