I have posted this link in the Publicity and Publications forum but I just realised that it probably belongs in this forum. Sorry for the double posting.

This is an interesting video of a public lecture about the latest advances in coeliac disease research that was held in Melbourne Australia last month. Some of the world's leading experts on coeliac disease talk about their research.

Believe it or not, I watched most of this! It was long but informative. I would love for the USA to get into research as much as Australia. The "vaccine" was so intriguing. I will dream of that day! They said they were about 6 years away from it going to market. You have to only have the DQ2 gene and my celiac child has DQ2 and DQ8 which would knock her out. But the majority of Americans have just the DQ2.

I'm not sure about the gene thing. Genes come in pairs so nobody has just the HLA DQ2 gene (except for a few people who are double DQ2). The researchers are saying that the vaccine will benefit 90+% of celiacs so I think this means that you just have to have the DQ2 gene and it may not matter what the other gene is.

I am one of those rare celiacs who doesn't have either the DQ2 or DQ8 gene so I am not holding out a lot of hope that the vaccine will ever benefit me personally. It's still pretty exciting though!

Thanks for posting this. I'm about 2/3rds of the way through and I've heard some new stuff. Very interesting. Especially interesting is that they found that the understanding of what part of gluten we react to has been inaccurate.

I think that one problem the researchers will have is that gluten affects more conditions besides celiac disease. Additionally, they give little mention of other gluten related disorders that do not include dq2 or dq8. But it is interesting. Does anyone here know when phase 2 begins?

    • If you do have celiac disease, antibodies can continue to rise and attack for days, week or months after a gluten exposure.   I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Thanks for the thoughtful replies, everybody!  I want to highlight that it's just been almost 4 weeks since I've eliminated gluten (and I've been very strict about it) - prior, I could eat gluten with no issues that like this. A sandwich would rob me of energy, but not in a way I could associate with having eaten the sandwich. How insane that four weeks off of gluten could produce this new exposure reaction for me   1.5 weeks into being gluten-free I felt well enough to taper off my OCD meds and so, while I haven had had any noticible negative reactions, SSRI withdrawals can resemble gluten exposure (although the symptoms I don't think are often delayed) - so I wonder if a weird mix is happening there.  And also... I'm mostly just stunned that my body could react so extremely now to what it used to take with relative ease a mere 26ish days ago. It's good to know this is an actual thing and not me being dramatic about my new eating regimen.   It literally feels like death and like I'll never getting through it - but I'm staying reasonable about it and woke up this morning feeling less terrible (although I've had to make several trips to the bathroom - tmi I know).  Thanks so much!
    • Would like to add to this- while eating gluten I would get a random hive here or there. Since giving up gluten a few days ago, I've had a hive pop up yesterday and today. I'm at such a loss as to why I'm feeling worse. Is this some sort of detox? Is this something experienced by others?
    • Isn't it bliss to be able to eat normal food again!  And yet - things can't be right yet, as like you, I pay for it later.  The sparkling wine was a real surprise to me: I don't like alcohol normally and I drank it to be sociable - if alcohol has this affect on others with gastritis, I now understand why the last consultant I saw asked if I drank.  She was obviously going to tell me to stop!  What an irritant! I've got a month until I need to come off Zantac, so I need to stop these treats.  Partly I upped my intake of normal food as I was concerned about weight loss.  It showed me that yes, my weight will hold or go up if I eat more fat, so I think it is only that which is causing the weight to come off.  At least, I hope it is. Still, at my age I don't want too lose too much - I have a fear it will make me look like a prune!   Stress continues to be a factor for me which ain't helping. But I'm determined to beat this!  
    • Awww Jhern...I'm sorry you are feeling so bad.  (((((Hugs))))) Please ask your Dr for a full thyroid panel to get a complete picture.  That includes TSH, free T4, free T3, TPOAb and TgAb...the last 2 are antibodies.  With a TSH that high, I would feel terrible...tired and achy for sure.  Most people, including me, feel best with their TSH around 1.  Some labs show an outdated range of .5-4.5.  I would bet that you would benefit from some thyroid medication. The weight gain could be from healing and absorbing nutrients too. I hope you get some answers and start feeling better soon!
