Celiac Disease & Gluten Intolerance Research
A new blood test under development by researchers at Walter and Eliza Hall Institute can rapidly and accurately diagnose celiac disease without the prolonged gluten exposure needed for current tests.
For many people with celiac disease, one of the numerous downsides of the condition is the constant threat of an adverse reaction triggered by accidental gluten consumption. Because reactions to gluten ingestion can be severe for some celiac patients, many clinicians are looking to see if anything can be done to lessen the effects gluten reactions in celiac patients once they have started.
A team of researchers recently set out to assess the validity and effectiveness of near-patient celiac immunological testing in dietician-led celiac disease follow-up clinics, and to compare the results against standard laboratory immunological techniques.
More and more people are reporting gastrointestinal symptoms that improve when wheat and/or gluten are removed from the diet. There is a diverse group of people who avoid wheat and/or gluten (PWAWGs), and who predominantly self-diagnose prior to presenting for clinical evaluation for celiac disease.
According to a new article by a team of researchers, not all gluten protein is created equal. That is, not all gluten proteins trigger an immune response in people with celiac disease.
Using the standardized interview of Paykel, a team of researchers set out to examine the relationship of stressful events in patients diagnosed with celiac disease, and to compare them with a control group of gastroesophageal reflux patients.
A patient with childhood celiac disease, who had undergone an allogeneic bone marrow transplant (BMT) for chronic myelogenous leukemia, was able to safely resume eating gluten after his celiac disease vanished.
By enabling researchers to link antibodies with specific diseases, a new method could help uncover and confirm environmental triggers for diseases such as celiac and autism.
Symptoms of celiac disease negatively impact the social activities and emotional states of some patients. A team of researchers recently set out to assess rates of altered eating behavior in celiac patients.
Looking into the possibility that their NCWS patients might in fact be suffering from non-immunoglobulin E (IgE)-mediated wheat allergy, a team of researchers conducted a review their own earlier data regarding NCWS, with a corresponding review of relevant medical literature on NCWS.
About 1 of of 100 Americans has celiac disease, but most cases remain undiagnosed, partly because of failure on the part of physicians to collect at least four specimens during duodenal biopsy, as per current recommendations.
A a team of researchers recently tried to determine the optimal time window for gluten introduction in children. The answer looks like 5 to 6 months of age.
A team of researchers recently set out to get some good clinical data that would tell them how common non-celiac gluten sensitivity actually is.
A new study shows that alcohol related cerebellar degeneration can trigger gluten sensitivity in certain genetically susceptible individuals.
A research team recently set out to explore the association between anti-secretory medication exposure and subsequent development of celiac disease.
A gluten-free diet is till the only treatment for celiac disease, but a number of companies are working on pharmaceutical treatments. However, very little information exists bout the level of interest among patients in using a medication to treat celiac disease.
A team of researchers recently set out to assesses the safety and efficacy of Aspergillus niger prolyl endoprotease (AN–PEP) to mitigate the effects of gluten in celiac patients.
People with non-celiac gluten-sensitivity often report gut and non-gut symptoms shortly after eating gluten; symptoms disappear on gluten-free diets, although these patients have no serologic markers of celiac disease, and no intestinal damage. However, there is no evidence to suggest any changes to blood or mucosa in those individuals.
A team of researchers recently investigated the specific effects of gluten after dietary reduction of fermentable, poorly absorbed, short-chain carbohydrates (fermentable, oligo-, di-, monosaccharides, and polyols [FODMAPs]) in patients with suspected non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS).
There is evidence that certain types of gut trauma can trigger celiac disease, but almost nothing is know about whether traumatic brain injury might trigger a neurological form of celiac disease in some individuals.
