Hi there! I have 2 Q's and one request.
1) I would like to know more info about M. avium specifically
MAC. I have never heard of this before only about M. avium intracellulaire.
(unless of course they are the same :)) The information I am seeking is
pathogenesis in terms of the GI tract along with incubation period.
2) I would like any info about M. paratuberculosis and its role in
the small and large intestines.
REQ: I was wondering if someone has a copy or a summary
of this particular article:
Chiodini RJ: Crohn's disease and the mycobacteriosis: A review
and comparison of two disease entities. Clin Microbiol Rev 2:90,1989
I realize that this is a tall order and any info would be much
appreciated as I have ulcerative colitis and any info about
mycobacteriae and chrohns might eventually shed light on its sister
-- many thanks Nadine
