i am starting the above treatment in 2 weeks and wondered if anyone had tried this, what side effects you had and whether it had helped. I have tried infliximab, methotrexate, adalimumab, steroids, 2 bowel resection ops and I am currently on azathioprine. Up to now nothing has worked and since the 2nd op the ulcers came straight back. My condition causes pain, diarrhoeaand weight loss. Thank you.

      Hi, it is new for Crohns, used a lot in USA. It works directly on your gut, so hoping it will help to heal the ulcers.  Thank you.

    I've heard it mentioned on the Facebook page for Crohn's & Colitis UK. You might want to have a look there.

    Hope it works for you
