Can Some Celiac Disease Be Treated with More than Just a Gluten-free Diet?

Celiac.com 08/05/2016 - Currently, a gluten free diet is the only option for treating celiac disease. Still, there are numerous patients who follow the diet, but do not respond fully clinically or histologically.

What options do doctors have to treat celiac disease beyond a gluten-free diet? A team of researchers wanted to find out. The research team includes S. Kurada, A. Yadav, and DA Leffler of the Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and the Celiac Research Program at Harvard Medical School, and the Department of Medicine at Boston Medical Center’s Boston University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts.

The team conducted a search of PubMed and clinicaltrials.gov to highlight celiac disease articles that use keywords including 'celiac disease' and 'refractory celiac disease' and focused on articles conducting pathophysiologic and therapeutic research in/ex-vivo models and human trials.

They then zeroed-in on developing therapies that influence these processes, including tight junction regulators, glutenases, gluten sequestrants and immunotherapy using vaccines, nanoparticles that may serve as adjuncts to a gluten-free diet, or maybe even allow for gluten consumption.

Their subsequent paper also highlight the role of anti-inflammatories, immunosuppressants and monoclonal antibodies in refractory celiac disease.

According to the commentary of their expert, "therapies including tight junction regulators and glutenases have the potential to be approved for non-responsive celiac disease, or as gluten adjuncts."

The team expect results of various phase 1/2 trials using AMG 714, BL 7010, IgY antibodies to be published. In the interim, They plan to treat refractory celiac disease with off-label use of 5 amino-salicylates, budesonide, nucleoside analogues and newer biologics developed for other inflammatory diseases.

I am currently facing a decision: Diagnosed with celiac in 2009. Last endoscopy in 2013 showed healing of small intestines, some duodenal scalloping still present.
I developed psoriasis vulgaris over 15% of my body. I am presently being offered Stelara as a treatment. How will this affect my celiac ...positive or negative?

A huge piece of the puzzle for me was reducing dairy and sugar consumption to minimal AND eliminating NSAIDs and other drugs that promote leaky gut.

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!

Make some concise notes in bullet point form to make sure you cover what you need to. You have a strong case for further investigation so if your doctor is reluctant don't be afraid to be assertive in looking for answers.
