Antibodies to Pork occurs in some with Crohn's disease

Some patients with the Auto immune disease Crohn’s have been shown to make antibodies to pork proteins. They would fare better if they avoided pork in their diet, giving the immune system a break from the offending protein. Its not the only cause of Crohn’s. Infections have been associated as a precipitating factor as well in people who have inherited the gene profile for Crohn’s disease.
