    Is celiac disease substantially underestimated? A number of researchers question past prevalence estimates for celiac disease.

    Until recently, researchers thought celiac disease was mainly a problem in Northern Europe and Australasia, and uncommon in North America and the Middle East. However, with better data, researchers now regard celiac disease to be equally common in all these places.

    In an effort to help clinicians make accurate celiac diagnosis without endoscopy and biopsy, the company Nestec S.A. of Vevey, Switzerland, a research and testing subsidiary of Nestlé has obtained U.S. Patent No. 8,409,819, entitled "Methods to predict risk for celiac disease by detecting anti-flagellin antibody levels."

    In an effort to determine the accuracy of claims that rates of celiac disease are on the rise, a team of researchers recently examined rates of celiac disease in a well-defined US county.

    Researchers at the Department of Food Technology of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid have used teff flour to develop a new biscuit they claim is suitable for "celiac patients and sportsmen."



    North India has what has come to be referred to as a “celiac belt”, where a greater than average number of people exhibit symptoms of celiac disease. This is partially because more wheat is consumed in this region, but also because the population possesses haplotypes necessary for celiac disease to develop. For this reason, it would make sense that emigrants from the area would also be prone to celiac disease. A study centered in Debyshire, UK investigates celiac disease as it manifests in the North Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi immigrant populations.

    In an effort to assess rising rates of celiac disease, and an increasing popularity of gluten-free food products, a team of researchers recently conducted a survey.

    Celiac disease seems to be on the rise in the United States, with recent population-based data suggest a sharp increase in rates over the last several decades.

    Data from Alvine's Phase 2A trial of its main celiac disease compound, ALV003, show that ALV003, orally administered to celiac disease patients on a gluten free diet, significantly reduces gluten-triggered intestinal mucosal damage.

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is gathering information on drug ingredients derived from wheat, rye or barley, to help people with celiac disease make better-informed decisions when buying drugs and other health products.

    Evidence from numerous epidemiological studies supports the idea that celiac disease is not a disease that largely affects children, but is actually a disease that can affect people of any age. Several recent studies suggested that a majority of patients are now diagnosed after age 50.

    Alvine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has announced that efficacy data from its Phase 2a clinical trial of ALV003 shows that oral ALV003, administered as part of a gluten free diet, reduced gluten-induced intestinal mucosal damage in people with well-controlled celiac disease.

    A drug to help relieve us from the harmful effects of gluten exposure. Celiac patients are closer than ever to having such a drug on the market.

    Alvine Pharmaceuticals claims that Phase 2a clinical trial of ALV003 demonstrates the drug's ability to mitigate gluten-triggered intestinal mucosal damage in serologically negative celiac disease patients who followed a gluten-free diet for one or more years.

    According to recent estimates, three million Americans suffer from celiac disease—approximately 1% of the population, and only three percent of them have to this writing been correctly diagnosed.

    Through the hard work and concerted efforts of many support groups and individuals throughout the US, along with the generosity of Instituto Di Ricerca in Italy, research funding was accumulated. Early in the Twenty-First Century, under the auspices of the Center for Celiac Disease Research, a new epoch in celiac disease awareness was born.
