Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy and Celiac Disease by Roy Jamron

Celiac.com 11/07/2006 – We should be hearing more about this in the news soon. A confocal laser endomicroscopy device developed by Optiscan, an Australian company, permits endoscopists to make an accurate real-time diagnosis of celiac disease, bypassing the need to take and prepare and evaluate biopsy specimens in a laboratory. This technique would allow the endoscopist to view and evaluate as many samples as needed to make a correct diagnosis and immediately give the results to the patient. This should reduce diagnostic errors. A paper on Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy in the diagnosis of Celiac disease by R. Leong et al. will be presented in Adelaide, Australia this Saturday, Oct. 14.

Optiscans unique and patented technology has miniaturized the microscopes scanning head, so that it is now so small it can fit inside the body. Once the miniaturized scanner is integrated into an endoscope to create an endomicroscope, doctors can for the first time safely and instantly get high quality images of tissue at a cellular level from their patients. This gives doctors new levels of information providing a highly magnified view of living tissue that is entirely consistent with the macroscopic views that they are used to seeing from their endoscopes. This breakthrough technology creates a vast array of new applications, both medical and industrial. Optiscans primary focus is in the medical arena, where it can provide a virtual biopsy, potentially revolutionizing current pathology and histology practices.

What you can do is get follow-up testing. This might help in determining if you are gluten-free diet compliant. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/

It looks insanely good. First time I've wished I was back in London for ages Omg I have to leave the thread I've not eaten yet and now I crave steak

It has always been odd to me that the US, the land of innovation in the world, cannot make great gluten free bread. Of course, no one cares about that except Celiac nation. I am not saying there isn't good gluten-free bread here because there is. In the 12 years since my diagnosis, it has come ...

Sounds great. Thank you!

I was thinking of trying it like 1tbsp maple syrup and upping the egg whites by 10-20g Should make a giant 9"pancake basically with maple flavoring. Not tried it yet but it should work. I was thinking making that version for giant pancake (to thin to pour into smaller ones) that you cook low and ...
