(Source: Raycom) (RNN) – Theres new hope for sufferers of Crohns disease, an inflammatory bowel disease that afflicts hundreds of thousands ofpeople in the U.S. Researchers believe theyve pinpointed key factors that cause thedebilitating disease whose symptoms include chronicdiarrhea, fever, abdominal pain and severe weight loss. To now, doctors couldn’tsay why some patients developed Crohn’s and others did not – the disease is classified as incurable. Case Western Reserve University’s med school led an international team that identified a common fungus as a key factor in the development of the disease, according to Science Daily. Doctors have long known that bacteria contribute to the condition, said Mahmoud A. Ghannoum, PhD., a Case Western professor and leader of the study. Previous research focused on bacteria, but nobody connected the role of the fungus to the disease. The new study identified twobacteria strainsand a single species offungusthat work together to produce a thin, slimy layer of micro-organisms that attaches to the intestines causinginflammation that creates thesymptoms. Hundreds of kinds of fungi and bacteria appear in the human intestine, so identifying these three is a big step forward, the study concluded. Ghannoum said further research is needed to more specifically identify the causesof Crohns, but the newfindings are cause for optimism. It can lead to a new generation of treatmentsthat have the potential to make a great difference in the quality of life of those suffering from Crohns, he said.
