Middle Eastern Scientists Receive Recognition for Contributions to Blastocystis Research in Medlab Magazine: Medlab Magazine has published a 4-page article on the contributions made by Middle Eastern scientists to Blastocystis Research.  The article, which was co-authored by BRF, noted that Middle Eastern researchers have significantly out-published researchers from North America over the past 10 years, despite limited resources.  The paper credits Middle Eastern researchers with a number of “firsts”, including the first study to identify a differentiable immune response in symptomatic and asymptomatic Blastocystis patients, and the first paper to suggest that Blastocystis is causing IBS. Copies of the article are available at BRF’s link below for a limited time:
