New Crohn's treatment shows promise

A new treatment for Crohn's disease using patients’ own modified cells has been proven to be effective in human cell experiments. The treatment was developed and tested by scientists at our NIHR Biomedical Research Centre.

 

Rachel Sawyer, 50, was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2000 and treated at Guy's and St Thomas'. She says: "Anything that could help people with Crohn's have the confidence to go out and get back to being the people they were destined to be would be a game-changer."

 

A clinical trial of the treatment is expected to start in the next six months.
