Treatment of Crohn's Disease by Probiotic E.coli Bacteria


Thanks to our sponsors

Video presentation
We are the first Hungarian iGEM team. We have found out that Crohn’s disease makes a lot of people’s lives difficult with its serious effects in the gastrointestinal tract. We have made genetically engineered bacteria, which could reduce the disease’s symptoms by producing a substance called N-acetylglucoseamine. These bacteria could be transplanted into the human intestines, by the means of yoghurts or capsules. With this method it would be much easier to treat patients with Crohn’s disease.
