ABSTRACT
This article presents information on several articles related to research in medicine, published in different journals. One of the articles is "Culture of Mycabacterium Avium Subspecies Paratuberculosis From the Blood of Patients With Crohn's Disease," by S.A. Naser, G. Ghobrial and C. Romero, published in the 2004 issue of the journal "Lancet." Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) causes chronic enteritis in cattle. Cell wall deficient structures have been cultured from Crohn's disease tissues, and have been confirmed by DNA hybridization techniques as MAP. MAP is extremely difficult to culture, and studies have used the DNA insertion element 15900 for identification.
