Celiac Disease & Gluten Intolerance Research
Despite sticking to a gluten-free diet, some celiac patients endure persistent duodenal damage; a condition associated with adverse outcomes.
A team of researchers recently set out to determine the prevalence and clinical risk factors for persistent villus atrophy among symptomatic celiac disease patients.
The team conducted a nested cross-sectional analysis on coeliac disease patients with self-reported moderate or severe symptoms, who were all following a gluten-free diet, and who underwent protocol-mandated duodenal biopsy upon enrollment in the CeliAction clinical trial.
A new study shows that people living in the southern United States have less celiac disease than their Northern counterparts, regardless of race or ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or body mass index.
Rates of celiac disease vary by region, with a sharp variation between Americans living in the northern United States and Americans living in the southern part of the country. A team of researchers recently examined geographic, demographic, and clinical factors associated with prevalence of celiac disease and gluten-free diet in the United States.
Previous studies have shown us that men are generally less troubled living with celiac disease than are women, but most studies of men with celiac disease have been mostly quantitative, and have a bio-medical emphasis. A team of researchers recently set out to explore the social experience of young men with screening-detected celiac disease and to highlight daily life situations five years after diagnosis. Self-assurance, authority, and confidence are key factors to a successful gluten-free diet for young adult men.
Microwave-based treatments of wheat can trick R5-antibody ELISA tests into registering under 20ppm gluten, and thus seeming gluten-free, but the actual gluten content remains unchanged. In recent tests, researchers found that microwave treatment (MWT) of wet wheat kernels caused a striking reduction in R5-antibody-based ELISA gluten readings, reducing the readings to under 20 ppm, so that wheat could theoretically be labeled as gluten-free.
Celiac disease is a chronic autoimmune-mediated enteropathy, triggered by exposure to dietary gluten in genetically prone individuals. Celiac disease is also one of many gastrointestinal diseases that can have dental manifestations. In fact, distinct dental enamel defects are strong indicators of celiac disease, and may lead to a role for dentists in better celiac screening.
Not having a serum marker for gluten intake makes it hard for doctors to tell if celiac patients are following their diets properly.
Nearly one in five children with celiac disease in one study population had persistent enteropathy, despite maintaining a gluten free diet.
New research clarifies the mechanics driving crypt hyperplasia in celiac disease, and suggests that PRC2-dependent fostering of epithelial stemness is a common aspect of intestinal diseases marked by epithelial hyperplasia or neoplasia.
Fecal gluten peptides show limits of monitoring gluten-free diet in celiac disease patients
If kids with celiac disease go on a gluten-free diet, how quickly does their serology return to normal?
New research shows that most patients with SNVA, especially non-white patients, do not have celiac disease.
Transglutaminase 2-specific celiac disease autoantibodies cause morphological changes and inflammation in the small-bowel mucosa of mice.
Could the amount of gluten matter more than breast-feeding or the timing of the introduction of gluten as a trigger for celiac disease?
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease in genetically susceptible individuals and is triggered by adverse immune reactions to gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains.
Older people often show clinically atypical symptoms of celiac disease, which can delay diagnosis.
Sufferers of clostridium difficile infection have new hope in fecal transplants. Doctors understand better why they work.
A new study looks at intestinal cell damage and systemic immune activation in individuals reporting wheat sensitivity, but no celiac disease.
Does the season or region of birth influence celiac disease risk? New science says yes.
