What Disease Does Saccharomyces Ab
I don't have anti-saccharomyces cerevisiae antibodies (asca's). My doctor still suspects that i might have Crohn's disease. Can one have Crohn's and no asca ab's?
Probably not: S. C. Is a species of yeast, likely the most widely studied, and has been used in winemaking, brewing, and baking for thousands years. It is present within the body, most commonly the cuticles of fingernails. I am unaware of it being dangerous to humans, even in presence of liver disease. There exists some intriguing research associating anibodies to this yeast with crohn's diseaase. Refer to id. ...Read more

Some vaccines contain saccharomyces cerivisiae. Could they cause u 2 form anti-saccharomyces cerivisiae antibodies, thus inducing Crohn's disease?
Probably not.: First of all, most vaccines don't go anywhere near the yeast, only recombinant vaccines use it. Secondly, the vaccines are purified , and the amounts of actual saccharomyces in the vaccine are very small, compared to the relatively huge amounts of the yeast in the bowel. So the likelihood of this being a problem is tiny. ...Read more

Probiotics: The intestinal flora and the interactions of various organisms is often not easy to predict and the introduction of Saccharomyces and Lactobacilli or other bacilli and which takes over will depend upon multiple poorly defined factors, and whether the patient is also receiving antibiotics for other reasons.
