Celiac Disease Diagnosis, Testing & Treatment
This category contains a comprehensive overview that covers the information on diagnosing and treating celiac disease, including the latest research on the various new tests/screening techniques.
Note: The only medically acceptable treatment for celiac disease is a 100% gluten-free diet for life.
Government task force says more evidence needed to adequately weigh the benefits and harms of celiac disease screening in asymptomatic patients.
A rapidly expanding knowledge of the celiac disease regulatory pathway could soon lead to new breakthroughs.
The world’s first vaccine aimed at curing celiac disease is slated to begin full trials in Australia later this year.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force will make screening recommendations regarding celiac disease screening after taking public comments.
A few simple steps can help teens take control of their own celiac disease treatments, and manage their own gluten-free diets.
Sometimes, certain cases can stand out and grab the attention of clinicians or researchers. Such is the case of a 62-year-old woman who was suffering from severe malabsorption, and diagnosed with celiac disease based on the findings of flat, small intestinal mucosa and HLA-DQ2 positivity, although celiac blood tests were negative.
Alba Therapeutics has announced that their celiac treatment, larazotide acetate, has been licensed and will enter the first Phase 3 clinical trials ever conducted in a celiac disease drug later this year.
Celiac treatment BL-7010 receives important designation as Class IIb medical device in the EU.
What's the best way to diagnose non-celiac gluten sensitivity? New guidelines might provide an answer.
Doctors might not need a biopsy to accurately diagnose celiac disease in asymptomatic children who have elevated anti-tTG, according to the latest study.
A new study suggests that result parameters tests for IgA antibodies to tissue transglutaminase vary widely by individual kit.
Here's every celiac disease treatment currently in development in a single list:
ALV003, by Alvine Pharmaceuticals, is a combination of two enzymes that break down gluten before it can provoke an immune reaction. The drug is a powder to be dissolved in water and taken before meals.
Celiac disease is frequently mis-diagnosed. Even when patients received endoscopy, celiac disease is often missed or not detected.
Can a new pill, which uses egg yolk antibodies to coat gluten, allowing it to pass from the body without harm, find a place on the crowded roster of contenders?
Current celiac disease call for a follow-up biopsy taken 1 year after diagnosis to monitor gut recovery. Many celiac patients show incomplete gut recovery at that time, but there’s not much research to help doctors figure out how significant this might be.
Many people with celiac disease know that gluten exposure can cause gut damage and trouble absorbing some vitamins and minerals, which can lead to serious deficiencies. However, even celiac who follow gluten-free diets may experience similar issues, including impaired vitamin and mineral absorption.
Of course, a strict gluten free diet is still the only safe and effective treatment for celiac disease. However, new drugs in development, some of which are currently being tested on humans, might allow people with celiac disease to safely eat gluten again, at least in small amounts.
A team of researchers recently set out to develop new evidence-based parameters for screening for growth disorders among children with celiac disease.
Getting high-quality biopsy specimens is key to making accurate celiac disease diagnoses. Endoscopists may take either a single- or double-biopsy specimen with each pass of the forceps. Does it matter whether they take one or two? Is two better than one?
