In vitro Model of the Pathogenesis of Celiac Disease

Oberhuber G, Schwarzenhofer M, Vogelsang H
Dig Dis 1999 Nov- Dec;16(6):341-4

Department of Clinical Pathology, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria. The in vitro challenge of duodenal mucosa with gliadin is a useful model to reproduce the immunological features of celiac disease (CD) and allows the study of early pathogenetic events in this disease. With this model it was shown that antigens such as ICAM-1 and HLA-DR are upregulated as early as 1-2 h after gliadin challenge in patients with CD. After 24 h the

Intraepithelial lymphocytes increased in number and showed proliferative activity. After in vitro stimulation with gliadin, endomysial antibodies were found in the supernatant of the cultured mucosa from patients with celiac disease following a gluten-free diet. This supported the notion that endomysial antibodies are at least in part produced locally. The model was also successfully used to identify toxic constituents of gliadin. Presently, organ culture is not commonly used for diagnostic purposes.

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (hypothyroid) was one of the first 'findable' problems for my sis-in-law (she had plenty of inconsistent GI symptoms, and unexplained infertility, but she was in the tiny percent of sero-negative...

Hey guys, I will try and keep this as short and concise as I can. About a year ago, I had a very long day at work and ate a lot of chicken wings and a very poor diet. The next week, I felt terrible. I head headaches, GI issues, fatigue and some muscle aches and nasal congestion. I thought it...

Hi Jmg - and anyone who is familiary with ranitidine (Zantac) Firstly, Jmg, I hope you don't mind my quoting your old post from last month to get your attention, but I wanted to speak to a fellow Brit as I'd value some advice from someone who knows how the NHS works. (I love the NHS by the w...

Thanks Marry. Your story is very similar indeed. I totally agree that the migraines are the worst symptom - the pain was terrible and there were times when I was almost convinced that I had a brain tumor. I'm glad you replied to my post because at least I can see that it's not all just in my...

That sucks I know you'd been looking forward to it. Well until you know you have try and forget about it and maybe you got lucky. You're due some good luck I think!
