Irritable Bowel Syndrome: Alleviate IBS symptoms with yoghurt and a sleep hormone, 14 Jan 2011 [cached]
Dr Henry C. Lin, is a gastrointestinal specialist and an associate professor of medicine at the University of Southern California in the US. Over the years, Dr. Lin noticed that almost all of his IBS patients experienced post-meal bloating. This prompted him to focus his research on gas caused by gut bacteria that ferments food in the intestinal tract. Some bacteria perform useful functions in the large intestine, but Dr. Lin suspected the bacteria might be migrating to the small intestine, triggering gas and bloating.
The use of antibiotics in Dr. Lin's study may have been helpful in demonstrating how bacteria play an important role in prompting IBS symptoms, but whenever antibiotics are used, probiotics need to be considered.

But according to gastrointestinal motility specialist Henry C. Lin, associate professor of medicine in the Keck School of Medicine of USC, the idea of a bacterial origin of IBS represents a major change in thinking.
Writing in the Aug. 18 issue of JAMA, Lin proposed that ordinary bacteria normally confined to the large intestine may expand into the small intestine, prompting uncomfortable bloating and gas after meals, a change in bowel movements as well as an immune response that may account for the flu-like illness so common in the IBS patient, including such debilitating symptoms as headaches, muscle and joint pains and chronic fatigue.
For more than a dozen years, Lin has searched for a common thread to account for the symptoms in IBS. Studies indicate 92 percent of IBS patients report bloating after they eat, a symptom he saw again and again in his patients.
While many physicians believe that IBS-related bloating is perceived and not real, Lin noted that recent studies of IBS patients show that their abdomens do become measurably more distended than those of healthy patients.
With the symptom of post-meal bloating in mind, Lin began the quest for the cause of IBS by considering the problem of increased intestinal gas.
Gas comes about when gut bacteria ferment food in the intestinal tract. There are plenty of organisms in the gut, where bacteria may number 100 trillion.
Bacteria perform a variety of valuable services in the large intestine, according to Lin. "But we believe problems may start when bacteria set up shop in the small intestine where they are normally scarce. Usual medical tests such as endoscopy cannot detect this problem in most patients," he said.
However, a breath test can be used to indirectly tell if too many bacteria are in the small intestine. In this test, the patient ingests a syrup containing the sugar lactulose. Over the next three hours, the gaseous products of bacterial fermentation of this sugar may be measured in the exhaled breath.
In a 2003 paper authored by Lin and his research partner Mark Pimentel of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, 84 percent of IBS patients were found to have abnormal breath test results suggesting small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.

The license agreement with Cedars-Sinai is related to research work directed by Henry C. Lin, M.D., former Director of the Gastrointestinal Motility Program and Section of Nutrition at Cedars- Sinai. Dr. Lin is currently on the Faculty at the Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California. Since before 1995, Dr. Lin's laboratory has been studying the key role played by PYY in the postprandial response to food and the manner in which it controls gastrointestinal physiology. PYY is integral to nutrient-triggered feedback that is involved in intestinal transit, hunger, and satiety.
The agreement includes issued patent # 6,558,708, which claims a priority date from an original application filed May 17, 1995, and which, in part, is directed to inducing satiety in a mammal by administering peptide YY or functional analogs. This is the only currently issued U.S. patent claiming the use of PYY or PYY analogs for inducing satiety. The license also includes additional U.S. and foreign patent applications, continuations, technology, and know-how related to PYY within CSMC under the direction of Dr. Lin.
