Study on MAP in Crohn's Recruiting Volunteers in New York City

A second location has just been announced for the Joint MAP Testing Study!

Human Paratuberculosis Foundation is looking for an additional:

15 adult Crohn's disease patients
30 adult Healthy Controls

August 6th and 13th

Collection Location: 580 Park Ave #1E, New York City

Our study seeks to confirm that Crohn’s disease patients have a significantly higher rate of Mycobacterium avium spp. paratuberculosis (MAP) infection than individuals that do not have Crohn’s, and to compare more recent rapid culture methods from multiple laboratories.

Consenting study patients will provide a blood sample, which will be tested for MAP in the blinded laboratories that will be blinded to the identity of the participants.

**There is no cost to participate in the study, but we ask that each Crohn's disease patient recruit 1-2 healthy control subjects who agree to also be tested.**
