Celiac And Interferon

1 post in this topic

I've been researching the drug Interferon (used as a cancer therapy). The interferon transverses the body in gluten peptides of all sources. This also causes increased permeability of this mucosal lining. Research has shown that the sudden onset of celiac spru can and does happen with some people (undiagnosed celiac?). They also show that a strict diet of gluten free food immediately brought down antibodies and resolved related symptoms.

It's also interesting to me that we also produce interferon naturally, of course not at the level of toxicity that the therapeutic dose is. But it seems that it could warrant more research. Has anyone else seen any research in this area? From what I gathered it seems this link is just now being looked at in very small studies but all research has to start somewhere.
