Coronado’s Crohn’s bowel disease treatment discontinued

Well, that’s disappointing. Apparently a study into the efficacy of Whipworm ova as a Crohn’s therapy has been cancelled because it wasn’t working. There’s been LOADS of anecdotal evidence about successful use of helminthic therapy. I know this is just one study, but a lack of success around such an ‘edgy’ therapy makes me concerned that it won’t be looked at in the future.
