Kind of interesting but most of it is way over my head in medical knowledge
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3108661/

Patient with Crohn's for 22 years, basically tried every standard medication for treatment with no results, never had sustained remission.

They treated him with an amino acid modulation therapy that balanced his serotonin and dopamine and induced lasting remission.

Stumbled on this while trying to see if d-aspartic acid is crohn's safe. Still no answer on that.

I have to say that a single patient in a single paper, it almost means nothing.

We have doctors out there prescribing drugs that perform at or worse than the placebo in studies, (not necessarily for crohn's). I'd say a study that shows 100% success on a small sample size is still better than that.

I doubt it will see more testing unless they see more money to be made in it.
