By Silvia S Kang, Seth M Bloom, Lyse A Norian, Michael J Geske, Richard A Flavell, Thaddeus S Stappenbeck and Paul M Allen


Paul Allen and colleagues describe the development of a mouse model of fulminant ulcerative colitis with multiple genetic hits in immune regulation which can be moderated by anti-cytokine therapy and broad-spectrum antibiotics
