    Caris Diagnostics Presents New Gastrointestinal Research at American College of Gastroenterology

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Celiac.com 02/15/2012 - At the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) 2011 Annual Scientific Meeting held in Washington, DC, Caris Diagnostics, a leader in anatomic pathology services, presented 15 abstracts highlighting new findings that reflect and expand Caris' commitment to gastrointestinal disease research.

    Caris DiagnosticsHighlights from the presentation include two studies, in particular. The first study, "High Prevalence of Celiac Disease in Women With Young Onset Collagenous Colitis," found that young women with collagenous colitis are eight times more likely than the general population to have celiac disease.

    That study was authored by Ahmed Bedeir, MD, Bhaskar Ganguly, and Mukunda Ray, MD, PhD. As Dr. Bedeir's finding is gleaned from the largest series of young patients with collagenous colitis ever reported, the study team recommends that women age 40 or younger who have a diagnosis of collagenous colitis also undergo an EGD with duodenal biopsies to exclude concurrent celiac disease.

    The second study, "Seasonal Patterns in Eosinophilic Esophagitis: An Analysis by Month of Diagnosis and Month of Birth," showed that, contrary to previous suggestions derived from smaller series, there was no evidence of monthly or seasonal variation even within known regions with diverse climates among our 10,000 patients with eosinophilic esophagitis.

    That study was authored by Jennifer M. Hurrell, DO, Amnon Sonnenberg, MD, and Robert M. Genta, MD, FACG.

    Regarding Caris' commitment to gastrointestinal disease research, Richard H. Lash, MD, Chief Medical Officer for Caris says that the "establishment of the Caris Research Institute as a structure for promoting and carrying out research has again generated a strong presence at the annual ACG meeting in Washington, D.C," adding that Caris remains  "committed to leveraging our tremendous database and academic talent to answer important questions in the field of gastroenterology and are honored to have the opportunity to present our findings at ACG 2011."

Nowadays, in some countries (the U.K. for instance), wafers made of wheat which contains only traces of gluten - and hence probably not deletereous for the celiac patient - are being made. The Vatican has allowed the use of such...
