(If there is  a smallest  suspicion that  person with IBS has  some form of coeliacs  or  sensitivity to  wheat, rye, barley and oats,    notice also to keep strict glutenfree  diet: No wheat, no rye, no barley, and  some very sensitive even  have to  avoid  oat.  ( not only  proteins and starch of these species  but even  fibres from them).

The big problem then  is, that  when eliminating these  4  species from the  diet,  also  the required  amount of daily fibre  become reduced – and  that  already can have been   the main problem  causing and  aggravating   IBS:   too  low  nutritional fibre content in the diet , perhaps  since years,  or all  life long.  Tayloring the individual  diet takes time and, one needs much  patience and   even knowledge  even about   the food  she/ he   daily  eats. People are individuals. To keep  a diet diary is a good help.  Pains and  discomfort  in the   digestive system   creates  a poor quality of life and  also swallow  much  of the active  daily time and thinking.  And  the advisers  are  plenty, and  everyone they are  giving their  individual advises. Everyone  with troubles  had  to  learn  to know  his/her own  peculiar  causalities between  the food  eaten and   the troubles after eating. Keeping a  diet diary  is a little help for memorizing and  guideline, too. Even  youd doctor  can get better insight about  your problems  when you can memorize better  these kind of  details .

Rye gamma-70 and gamma-35 secalins and barley gamma-3 hordein cross-react with omega-5 gliadin, a major allergen in wheat-dependent, exercise-induced anaphylaxis.

Interesting article about lysine modifications as acetylations (1960) , propionylations (2009), butyrylations (2009), malonylations (2013) , succinylations (2013), glutarylations (2014), biotinylation, lipoylation. Also the seven Sirtuins in the focus, because they can remove these posttranslational modifications (PTM). SIRT4 e.g. can function as mitochondrial lipoamidase and biotinidase (2014).

Ebola Vaccine

May 22, 2018


“It’s going to be tough, and it’s going to be costly to stamp this out,” Dr. Salama said at a news conference in Geneva.

Health agencies soon plan to deploy a new Ebola vaccine for the first time since it was proved effective two years ago. If it succeeds in halting the outbreak, the vaccine may permanently change the way the world responds to Ebola and greatly lessen the terror surrounding the disease.

Ebola kills about half its victims, often through horrific bleeding from all the body’s orifices. It is thought to circulate in bats, occasionally breaking out to infect people or apes that people sometimes eat. The virus is transmitted in blood, feces and many bodily fluids, and by sex.

KAMPALA, Oct. 24 (Xinhua) — Uganda’s ministry of health on Tuesday said two health workers in the eastern part of the country have developed signs of the deadly Marburg fever.

Jane Aceng, minister of health, told reporters that the health workers interacted with the index case which died on Oct. 11 at Kapchorwa hospital.

“Blood samples have been taken off and sent to Uganda Virus Research Institute for testing,” said Aceng, noting that in the interim, the health workers have been isolated and are being monitored.

The number of cumulative cases currently stands at two – with one confirmed and one probable case, according to the ministry.

The minister said a total of 155 people who got into contact with the index case are being monitored.

The last Marburg outbreak in Uganda was reported in central and western parts of the east African country in 2014.

Marburg is a severe and highly fatal disease caused by a virus from the same family as the one that causes Ebola hemorrhagic fever, according to the World Health Organization.

According to the global health body, the illness caused by Marburg virus begins abruptly, with severe headache and malaise.
