Clinical Trial Results - Low Dose Naltrexone is Effective Treatment for Crohn's

Low Dose Naltrexone study results - show that LDN did help Crohn's Disease sufferers. 

I'm searching to find out why this drug that is said to help people with autoimmune diseases - Crohn's being just one of the diseases, is not approved by the FDA yet for the treatment of autoimmune diseases. 

There are so many positives for prescribing this drug vs all the biologics that come with the risk of some very dangerous side effects. Not to mention, naltrexone is super reasonable in price, few side-effects and is effective! 

I just wanted to share my findings when searching on the FDA site for clinical trials. Let me know if you find this encouraging or helpful to you.

Be well everyone!
