LDN Studies

Hi

My GI wants me to choose between frequent colonosopies or going on Remicade and Imuran.
I mentioned LDN to her but she said that there where not enough studies to warrant using it.
My GP was more receptive and wanted me to bring the LDN studies information to next appt.
I have seen the studies in the sticky post.
My question is are there any other studies that I should be aware of?

There have only been the 3 including 1 for pediatrics. TNI Biotech has purchased the orphan patent rights to LDN and are planning a phase III trial. Last I heard this was supposed to occur early 2014 according to their website.
