Crohn's disease: it's kind of complicated
Microbes are implicated in the progression and perhaps onset of Crohn's disease. Research is intensifying into into what these microbes are, how they interact with each other, and how these interactions can affect people differently. Writing in Gut Microbes, postdoctoral fellow Dr. Wael Elhenawy and MD/Ph.D. student Alex Oberc discuss microbe-microbe interactions in the gut that might play a role in the onset and progression of Crohn's disease.
