Links to other information resources on the Web.
The amount of information on the web about Mycobacterium paratuberculosis is slowly increasing, so I have created this list of links to other sites. Not all of the sites are relevant to paratuberculosis, however.
Sites for sufferers of Crohn's disease.
There are numerous sites out there, but I only list here those that I consider to be most relevant. A lot of these sites contain extensive lists of links to other Crohn's related sites.
- Paratuberculosis Awareness Research Association.
- IBD Sucks! This excellent site, maintained by Bill Robertson at Boston University, was the first and is the best. It is the quintessential IBD site. It has discussion fora, news, links to important resources, among many other great features. This site has always been an inspiration to me.
- The Crohn's & Colitis Pharmacist web page is run by a pharmacist, Anthony J. Longo,
- Peter Waites Crohn's Disease Web Page is another great source of information, including "The IBD Book Store".
- If you're worried about Mycobacterium paratuberculosis in milk, see the "No Milk" page, which is an excellent resource for dairy free living. It gives plenty of other reasons why milk can be bad for everyone.
Sites for Medical and Veterinary professionals.
- The most extensive veterinary and general resource available on the net for information about Mycobacterium paratuberculosis is the "Johne's Disease Information Center". BJD (Bovine Johne's Disease) is bovine paratuberculosis, i.e. paratuberculosis infection in cows, as well as other animals. This site is sponsored by Dr Michael T. Collins, who has developed many of the techniques used in paratuberculosis research, for both humans and animals.
- The University of Wisconsin Medical School - Center for Colorectal Surgery are conducting research into Mycobacterium paratuberculosis infection in humans.
- The International Association for Paratuberculosis, a group of medical and veterinary professionals from 30 different countries, is greatly concerned about the rise of Mycobacterium paratuberculosis in human and animal environments. Their mission is to research M paratuberculosis and to raise awareness of M paratuberculosis in the medical and veterinary worlds.
- If you want to search the Medline database yourself, you can get free access to it from Medscape and also from Healthgate.
- The GETECCU project, based in Spain, is a collaborative project to coordinate research into Inflammatory Bowel Disease. They have an event calendar, and a very useful list of links to various online gastroenterology journals.
