Mr. Crohn's partner died of AIDS complications as did many of his friends.  Mr. Crohn was naturally resistant to the HIV virus and made substantial contributions to science in the study of his biological and genetic makeup.

Article excerpt:


"...Mr. Crohn’s resistance helped lead to a deeper understanding of H.I.V., the virus that causes AIDS, and treatments, simply by staying alive and working with doctors to help figure out why he was.

“What he contributed to medical knowledge is really quite extraordinary,” said Dr. Bruce D. Walker, the director of the Ragon Institute of Massachusetts General Hospital, M.I.T. and Harvard..."

Dr. Paxton and Mr. Crohn remained friends. “He was the type of guy who walks into the room, and it lights up,” he said. “I was going to call him this weekend.”

Well if nothing else Dr Paxton has been saved the cost of a trunk call.

Every cloud has a silver lining.

Matty Sugarloaf,

I see your fingers have been doing their prescribed knuckle bends and are back in shape.

Welcome back to the village.
