Celiac Disease & Gluten Intolerance Research
Researchers say a new, hairless variety of canary seeds bred specifically for human consumption would make an ideal gluten-free cereal for people with celiac disease.
A research team finds that the current standard practice of screening adolescents who are either symptomatic or at high-risk for celiac disease proves to be more cost-effective than universal screening.
Celiac disease is known to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. The genetic markers are fairly well established by now, but the environmental factors that are associated with celiac disease are still pretty foggy. A recent study suggests that antibiotic use might be one such factor.
Australian food manufacturers and retailers are pushing the government agency that regulates gluten-free food to allow gluten to be included in foods labeled ''gluten-free.''
In an effort to find a way other than these invasive methods to distinguish between uncomplicated and complicated forms of celiac disease, a research team set out to study serum parameters in the spectrum of celiac disease
Researchers have completed a genetic study of six autoimmune diseases, including diabetes, the largest such study of human disease genetics to date.
Potential celiac disease (PCD) is a type of celiac disease marked by positive endomysial/tissue transglutaminase antibodies and a preserved duodenal mucosa despite a gluten-containing diet (GCD). PCD can turn into active celiac disease, but very little is currently known about what causes that to happen.
Hoping to develop a vaccine that will allow patients with celiac disease to safely eat gluten, researchers are busily exploring the possibilities offered therapeutic vaccines, known as antigen-specific immunotherapy.
To investigate the prevalence of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) DQ2/8 alleles in Southern Italians with liver and gastrointestinal (GI) diseases outside of celiac disease, a team of researchers recently looked at human leukocyte antigen DQ2/8 prevalence in non-celiac patients with gastrointestinal diseases.
Researchers have known for some time that immunoglobulin G antibodies against deamidated gliadin peptides are about as accurate as tissue transglutaminase and endomysium autoantibodies in diagnosing celiac disease in adults. However, not much is known about their predictive value in infants with a suspected gluten enteropathy.
A number of studies have indicated that people with celiac disease have an inadequate response to hepatitis B vaccination. In an effort to better understand the issue, a team of researchers assessed hepatitis B vaccination response in relation to gluten exposure status in patients with celiac disease.
Intestinal absorption capacity is currently regarded as the best way to assess overall digestive intestinal function. Earlier reference values for intestinal function in healthy Dutch adults were based on a study that was conducted in an inpatient metabolic unit setting in a relatively small series.
Previous studies have shown an immunologic response primarily directed against transglutaminase (TG)6 in patients with gluten ataxia (GA). A team of researchers set out to see if Transglutaminase 6 antibodies could be helpful in the diagnosis of gluten ataxia.
A team of researchers recently set out to test determine if an interactive online intervention might help to improve gluten free diet adherence in adults with celiac disease.
A team of researchers recently set out to determine how microbial fermentation with lactic acid bacteria might be used to make better gluten-free products.
A team of researchers recently set out to determine whether IEL parameters have any connection with mortality and morbidity in cases of refractory celiac disease.
A team of researchers recently took a look at how well the hepatitis B vaccine protected people with celiac disease over time, and how well they responded to a vaccine booster.
There haven't been many studies that evaluate the usefulness of capsule endoscopy in equivocal celiac disease. A team of researchers recently set out to conduct an evaluation of capsule endoscopy in adult celiac disease...
More and more, research is showing that celiac disease may have a variety of different clinical presentations. A team of researchers recently used data from Italy, Romania and Iran to explore rates of gastrointestinal and non-gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with celiac disease.
Enterocyte damage is one of the common features of celiac disease, and often results in malabsorption. Presently, doctors don't know very much about the recovery of enterocyte damage and its clinical consequences. Serum intestinal fatty acid binding protein (I-FABP) is a marker that allows researchers to study enterocyte damage.
