Natural killer cell activity in coeliac disease: effect of in vitro treatment on effector lymphocytes and/or target lymphoblastoid, myeloid and
'); return false">epithelial cell lines with gliadin
Folia Microbiol, 1995 (Praha) 40; 6: 615-620.
In this study researchers tested the levels of natural killer cell activation in normal people and compared the results with treated celiacs, and found no significant difference. However, after exposing the celiacs blood to gliadin for thirty minutes the researchers found a reduced activation of natural killer cells, which is the bodys first line of defense against malignancy. These results provide further support to the theory that gluten is a carcinogen to celiacs.

In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams
