Abstract

Food items containing raw yeast led to more frequent problems for patients with Crohn's disease than for patients with ulcerative colitis. This observation supports our previous data, which showed the stimulatory effect of the yeast antigen, mannan, on B and T cells of patients with Crohn's disease but not of controls.
