Celiac.com 12/11/2018 - In most people without celiac disease or other gluten sensitivities, the gut does a pretty good job of processing gluten, and helps to prevent local inflammatory and immune responses. However, in about one percent of the population, gluten proteins from wheat and related cereals trigger an HLA DQ2/8‐restricted TH1 immune and antibody response, which triggers celiac disease.
