Really excited to see what they have to say/show. I hope they've got more findings linking MAP to Crohn's and also maybe some insights into the Vaccine trials. I want to send my bloods to NZ and be tested for MAP and part of me is hoping that i test positive for it. I will wait to see the happenings here first though.

I've browsed online but there's been no real post about this yet. There is info on HumanPara twitter page but they're short snippets and not fully informative. Anyone have any links?

Interesting to see that they think 90% of US cattle are now infected by MAP
