Is Celiac Disease Seriously Under-Diagnosed? Photo: CC--US Army

Are doctors even getting close to diagnosing the actual number of cases of celiac disease? Or are they missing the vast majority?

Researchers have said for some time that there are far more people with celiac disease than are being diagnosed, and that the vast majority of cases go undiagnosed.

If a new study by Canadian nutrition researchers is any indication, most cases of celiac disease remain undiagnosed.

A new study shows that activation of IRF1 and IRF1-regulated genes together, both directly and via the interleukin-18 dependent inflammasome, would greatly increase the severity of the inflammatory response.

Celiac disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of the small intestine mucosa due to permanent intolerance to dietary gluten.

A team of researchers recently set out to clarify the role of small intestinal epithelial cells in the immunopathology of celiac disease, especially the influence of celiac disease-associated bacteria.

Are primary care physicians under-testing for celiac disease in patients with iron deficiency anemia? A new survey of primary care doctors indicates that they are.

It's fairly common for people with celiac disease to develop iron deficiency anemia (IDA), but researchers don't know much about the frequency with which primary care physicians test for celiac disease in patients with IDA.

A team of researchers recently set out to describe how primary care doctors approach testing for celiac disease in asymptomatic patients with IDA.

Can undetectable negative tTG IgA antibodies predict mucosal healing in treated celiac disease patients? Photo: CC--Binary Koala

Tissue transglutaminase (tTG) immunoglobulin A (IgA) testing is a sensitive adjunct to the diagnosis of coeliac disease. The threshold for positivity was developed for diagnosis, with negative results reported as below the reference value (<4 U/mL).

A team of researchers recently set out to investigate if an undetectable tissue transglutaminase IgA antibodies (tTG IgA<1.2 U/mL) is more predictive of healing compared to patients with negative but detectable serology (1.2-3.9 U/mL).

A Merrill Lynch broker in Denver has sued the firm in federal court, claiming that its systemic "sabotage" of his relationship with clients during and following two medical leaves have cost him hundreds of thousands of dollars.

In a case filed this summer in federal court in Colorado, Kirk Kringel, a broker with Merrill since 2010, alleges that the company violated his rights under the Family Medical Leave Act by retaliating against him for taking the two medical leaves, including one that was related to celiac disease.

Can probiotics delay onset of gluten intolerance in children? Photo: CC--Ryan Schneider

New trial data suggests that the probiotic strains Lactobacillus plantarum Heal 9 and Lactobacillus paracasei 8700:2 may provide support for the immune system and delay the onset of gluten intolerance in children.

The findings, recently presented at the International Celiac Disease Symposium in New Delhi, suggest that Probi's patented probiotic strains have a 'surprisingly consistent' effect on suppressing coeliac autoimmunity and may delay the onset of the disease in children who are genetically pre-disposed to the condition.

Grain industry study touts benefits of bread. Photo: CC--Kevin Dooley

As people eat less processed foods, and more people adopt a gluten-free diet, manufacturers are selling less and less refined wheat flour, less bread, rolls, and cereals.

Consumption of wheat is plummeting, and that has the people who grow wheat wondering what to do.

Well, one thing wheat growers can do is hire researchers to study the problem in such a way that the logical conclusion is that foods made from refined grains, such as breads, rolls, and cereals, aren’t really that bad after all.

The company announced at ICDS 2017 that it has presented data showing the immunologic basis for the early clinical effects of gluten in celiac disease.

What is it about the Internet that seems to bring out the worst in some people? In this case, internet trolls making nasty comments about reality star and popular UK country singer Megan McKenna.

The body-shaming began almost immediately after McKenna posted two photos of herself on Instagram this summer. According to BuzzFeed, comments calling her things like "boney" and a "skinny rat," flooded in.

McKenna recently explained that, at the time the photos were taken, she was in the hospital dealing with the the effects of a medical condition.

Celiac Disease is a global disease and affects almost 0.7% of the world's population. In India, researchers estimate that celiac disease affects about six to eight million Indians. Rates in the north India community are 1 in 100.

In a bid to discuss and explore the best ways to address the challenges faced by patients with celiac disease and the way forward, the 17th International Celiac Disease Symposium (ICDS 2017) was held for the first time in Asia from the 8th to the 10th of September 2017.

ICDS offers a platform for researchers, gastroenterologists, clinical scientists, nutritionists, and other relevant industry leaders from across the globe to gather and address common challenges faced by patients living with celiac disease.



Can science bring any certainty to diagnosing seronegative celiac disease? Photo: CC--Saturnism

Patients who have clinical, genetic and histological signs of celiac disease, but no serological markers, present a challenge when it comes to making a diagnosis. If the patient doesn't have elevated antibodies, what signs do doctors look for? What's the best way to evaluate the patient's natural history and response to a gluten-free diet?

A team of researchers recently set out to outline a specific profile, and to evaluate the natural history and response to a gluten-free diet of patients with seronegative celiac disease.
