Celiac Disease & Gluten Intolerance Research

This category contains summaries of research articles that deal strictly with scientific research publications on celiac disease. Most of these research summaries contain the original source of the publication.

    Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease in genetically susceptible individuals and is triggered by adverse immune reactions to gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains.

    Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy.

    Many doctors hear from celiac patients who suffer from persistent symptoms despite a long-term gluten-free diet. A research team recently set out to investigate the prevalence and severity of these symptoms in patients with variable duration of a gluten-free diet.

    Some researchers have suggested that gluten may not be the actual trigger of symptoms in non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Others feel that gluten is definitely the trigger, especially in certain cases.

    Symptoms and damage in celiac disease is caused by partially-degraded gluten peptides from wheat, barley and rye. Susceptibility genes are necessary to trigger celiac disease, but they can't do it alone. Some researchers suspect that these susceptibility genes might get help from conditions resulting from unfavorable changes in the microbiota.

    Study shows gliadin peptide p31-43 activates celiac-related innate immune pathways in vivo, also hints at a common mechanism for interaction between dietary gluten and viral infections in triggering celiac disease.

    Do all patients with potential celiac disease need a gluten-free diet? The transformation of potential celiac disease to full-blown celiac disease has been described in some western clinical studies, but there is no good data on cases in Asia.
