[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Phil Kiossoglou

Phil, thank you for sending your issue, sorry it was a pain for so long.

After some trial and error, I found the problem word in your text is 'concept'. Delete that word and you can have recommendations for the rest of this text.

As a more permanent fix, we'll have to look in the index to see what has been corrupted. I think this will be straightforward, but it may be a few days before we can get to it. We'll send an email once fixed.

Attempting to use the NCBO recommender, both via the API and via the online web app is generating errors. In the case of the API, these are HTTP 500 errors.

This issue has been persisting for > 1 week.

The text I am supplying is (without quotes):

"Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) including Crohn's disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), is an immunologically mediated chronic disease. The key underlying pathology is a deregulated immune response to commensal flora in a genetically susceptible host. Advances in genomics, epigenomics and understanding of the microbiome have brought forth the role of these spheres in the pathogenesis of IBD. Yet these factors explain only a small fraction of disease risk and our ability to predict relapses and response to treatment remains dismal. The external environment plays an important role in modifying the risk of IBD and in precipitating relapses in patients with established disease. The term 'exposome' was proposed to reflect a life-course of environmental influences beginning in-utero and proceeding right through childhood to adulthood. While the exposome is still a concept which needs practical perspective to enable better patient care, this review examines the gaps in our understanding that the IBD exposome helps explain. We further highlight the definition and parameters of this metric which can be incorporated for its application in research and clinical practice"

I have supplied this data to the recommender in the past and it has worked successfully. Can you please advise if there is a fault at the moment?

Thanks and regards,
