Maize Prolamins Could Induce a Gluten-Like Cellular Immune Response in Some Celiac Disease Patients

 In some celiac disease patients, as a rare event, peptides from maize prolamins could induce a celiac-like immune response by similar or alternative pathogenic mechanisms to those used by wheat gluten peptides. This is supported by several shared features between wheat and maize prolamins and by some experimental results. Given that gluten peptides induce an immune response of the intestinal mucosa both in vivo and in vitro, peptides from maize prolamins could also be tested to determine whether they also induce a cellular immune response. Hypothetically, maize prolamins could be harmful for a very limited subgroup of celiac disease patients, especially those that are non-responsive, and if it is confirmed, they should follow, in addition to a gluten-free, a maize-free diet.

In some people I do wonder if this could be a temporary intolerance due to the leaky gut caused by untreated celiac disease. For example, I could not tolerate corn for around 2 years after my diagnosis, but after my gut healed I have not issues with corn and eat it daily.
