Can a Point-of-Care Test in Predict Villous Atrophy in Celiac Patients on a Gluten-Free Diet?
If people with celiac disease hope to avoid complications, then it’s important for their gut mucosa to heal. However, besides biopsy, there is currently no good way for doctors to assess that a patient has healed enough to experience full remission. A team of researchers recently set out to assess the role of a point-of-care […]

Blood Test Can Tell Celiac from Non-Celiac Patients By Cytokine Levels
ImmusanT, Inc., the company working to develop a therapeutic vaccine to protect HLADQ2.5+ patients with celiac disease against the effects of gluten, presented data that shows a way to tell the difference between celiac disease (CeD) and non-celiac gluten-sensitive (NCGS) based on cytokine levels. Professor Knut Lundin, University of Oslo, presented the data at United […]

Prick a Finger and Save a Life: How YOU Can Make a Difference in Celiac Disease Research
It’s just like being a little kid with a super sore throat and your mom taking you to the doctor to get a test for strep throat. The doctor swabs your throat with two sticks to find out what nasty bacteria is camping out. In just moments you’ve got a diagnosis of strep throat and […]

Is There a Connection Between Antibiotic Use and Celiac Disease Autoimmunity?
Researchers still don’t have much good data on the consequences of antibiotic use in early life and how that relates to the risk of certain autoimmune diseases. A team of researchers recently set out to test the association between early-life antibiotic use and islet or celiac disease autoimmunity in genetically at-risk children prospectively followed up […]

Sjögren's Syndrome: The Link with Celiac Disease
What is the link between the autoimmune diseases Sjögren’s syndrome and celiac disease? In a study, 14.7% of Sjögren’s syndrome patients were found to have celiac disease and 11.8% of non-celiac Sjögren’s syndrome patients were found to have inflamed mucosa in the small intestine. With this knowledge, people who suffer from Sjögren’s syndrome may be […]

What Role do Intraepithelial Lymphocyte Counts Play in Celiac Mucosal Assessment?
What role do intraepithelial lymphocyte counts and distribution play in celiac disease mucosal interpretation? Making an accurate count of intraepithelial lymphocytes (IEL) is important to making an accurate diagnosis of celiac disease, but so far, researchers have not been able to establish a definitive ‘normal’ IEL range. In a recent multi-center study, a team of researchers […]

Can a Gluten-Free Diet Improve Symptoms of Celiac Hepatitis?
What’s the relationship between celiac disease and liver histology, serology and treatment response? Celiac disease is diagnosed on the basis of ESPGHAN criteria, and clinical response to gluten-free diet. Researchers have noted histological abnormalities on liver biopsies in patients with celiac disease, but have rarely described the abnormalities in detail. A team of researchers recently […]

Are Doctors Missing 90% of Celiac Disease Cases?
Are doctors even getting close to diagnosing the actual number of cases of celiac disease? Or are they missing the vast majority? Researchers have said for some time that there are far more people with celiac disease than are being diagnosed, and that the vast majority of cases go undiagnosed. If a new study by […]

Could the Dual Activation of IRF1 and IRF1-Regulated Genes Be a Key to Celiac Disease Symptoms?
A new study shows that activation of IRF1 and IRF1-regulated genes together, both directly and via the interleukin-18 dependent inflammasome, would greatly increase the severity of the inflammatory response. Celiac disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of the small intestine mucosa due to permanent intolerance to dietary gluten. A team of researchers recently set out to […]

Are Doctors Failing to Test Iron Deficient Anemia Patients for Celiac Cases?
Are primary care physicians under-testing for celiac disease in patients with iron deficiency anemia? A new survey of primary care doctors indicates that they are. It’s fairly common for people with celiac disease to develop iron deficiency anemia (IDA), but researchers don’t know much about the frequency with which primary care physicians test for celiac […]

Can Undetectable Negative Tissue Transglutaminase IgA antibodies Predict Mucosal Healing in Treated Celiac Disease Patients?
Tissue transglutaminase (tTG) immunoglobulin A (IgA) testing is a sensitive adjunct to the diagnosis of coeliac disease. The threshold for positivity was developed for diagnosis, with negative results reported as below the reference value (<4 U/mL). A team of researchers recently set out to investigate if an undetectable tissue transglutaminase IgA antibodies (tTG IgA<1.2 U/mL) […]
