People with celiac disease face a higher risk of infections like tuberculosis, influenza, and pneumococcal pneumonia, but researchers don't know how this might apply to risk of Clostridium difficile infection in those patients.

A team of researchers recently set out to identify celiac disease patients using biopsy data from all pathology departments in Sweden over the 39-year period covering July 1969 through February 2008. They compared the risk of Clostridium difficile infection, based on stratified Cox proportional hazards models, among patients with celiac disease versus a control group of patients without celiac disease--matched by age, sex, and calendar period.

More and more, people are adopting a gluten-free diet due to perceived health and weight-loss benefits.

A team of researchers recently set out to ask people with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity about their views on the health effects of gluten, and safety of vaccines and gluten-free food products.

Cerebellar ataxia with sensory ganglionopathy (SG) is a disabling combination of neurological dysfunction that usually occurs as part of certain hereditary ataxias. However, some patients present this combination with no apparent genetic cause.

A team of researchers recently set out to if autoimmunity might have a role to play in SG. The team reviewed records of all patients that have been referred to the Sheffield Ataxia Centre who had neurophysiological and imaging data suggestive of SG and cerebellar ataxia respectively.

As people in numerous countries debate genetically modified crops, some countries, including France and Germany, have passed laws to prohibit their cultivation.

Nexvax2 is a peptide-based, epitope-specific immunotherapy intended to reduce reactions to natural gluten exposure, and ultimately restore tolerance to gluten in patients with celiac disease.

Celiac disease patients who received fixed intradermal doses of Nexvax2 lost their sensitivity to the HLA-DQ2·5-restricted gluten epitopes in Nexvax2, but their tolerance was limited to 150 μg, due to gastrointestinal symptoms and cytokine release, mimicking gluten exposure, that accompany the first dose.

Sandwich lovers can get mighty particular about which breads make the best sandwich. There's plenty of room for opinion, and personal taste can include opinions on toasting versus non-toasting, seeded versus non-seeded, white versus whole grain, and on and on.

That means that this list of gluten-free sandwich breads is not meant to be authoritative. It is not written in stone. In fact, it is subject to revision based on input and suggestions by our readers.

A team of researchers recently set out to conduct a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of general cognitive ability ("g"), further enhanced by combining results with a large-scale GWAS of educational attainment. Their study provided a large-scale GWAS of cognitive performance, combined with GWAS of educational attainment; 70 independent genomic loci associated with individual differences in cognition. The study found that implicated genes suggest potential treatment targets for cognitive enhancement. The team also observed genetic overlap between cognitive ability and multiple health-related phenotypes.

Armed with a Harvard MBA, Christine Rohrbeck was one of the few women to reach the top of the secretive, richly paid world of hedge funds.

Still in her 30s, Rohrbeck was one of only two women out of 50 investment professionals employed at Baupost Group, one of the largest and most successful hedge funds. A rising star at the company, Rohrbeck would earn a $3.75 million bonus for her performance in 2014.

Because gluten is vital to the texture, structure and stretch of pasta, replicating pasta without gluten is especially difficult. It's even harder for fresh pastas, and harder still for filled pastas, like ravioli and tortellini.

In the case of pasta, the trick is to get the pasta to stretch around the filling. In traditional fresh pastas, the stretch comes from gluten in the wheat flour.

Your own unique microbiome may represent the future of personalized medicine, including customized treatments for celiac disease.  In the very near future, your personal microbiome may be the key to creating a customized treatment for celiac disease.

That's because new advances in genome studies are promising to help create a customized, individual approach for treating numerous disorders, including celiac disease. Such individualized treatments may also help to reduce adverse events, and decrease health care costs.
