Publication date: Available online 17 February 2018 Source:The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics Author(s): Michael Erlichster, Jason A. Tye-Din, Michael D. Varney, Efstratios Skafidas, Patrick Kwan Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genotyping has become a useful investigation in the diagnostic work-up of coeliac disease (CD), with utility in risk stratification and screening. However, broad application of this technology has been hindered by the cost and time burden of conventional laboratory-based assays. We have developed and validated CD–loop-mediated isothermal amplification (CD-LAMP), a LAMP assay, which enables ra...

Colgrave A strict, lifelong gluten-free (GF) diet is currently the only treatment for coeliac disease (CD). Vinegar and soy sauce are fermented condiments that often include wheat and/or barley. During fermentation cereal proteins are partially degraded by enzymes to yield peptide fragments and amino acids. Whether these fermented products contain intact or degraded gluten proteins and if they are safe for people with CD remains in question. LC-...

Conclusions: These results demonstrated that patients (children) with Down syndrome had high prevalence of CD (more than one in twenty). The prevalence is high enough to motivate screening CD in DS children. PMID: 29435186 [PubMed]

Abstract Enteropathy‐associated T‐cell lymphoma is regarded as a dismal, late complication of coeliac disease, though a single case of T‐cell lymphoma with such features arising in the setting of autoimmune enteropathy of the adult has been reported to date. We aim to describe the case of a 41‐year‐old woman complaining of severe malabsorption syndrome, who was diagnosed with autoimmune enteropathy based on the presence of flat intestinal mucosa unresponsive to any dietary restriction and positivity for enterocyte autoantibodies. Steroid therapy led to a complete recovery of both mucosal and clinical findings ove...

AbstractAimTo investigate the association of alleles of the 3 ′ immunoglobulin heavy-chain regulatory region 1 (3′RR-1) enhancer hs1.2 in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D).MethodsEighty-one patients with T1D [among which 12 had concomitant coeliac disease (CD) and 25 an autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD)] were compared to 248 healthy individuals. All subjects were recruited from the same geographical area. Blood samples were collected from all patients and a nested PCR was performed to amplify the core of the 3 ′RR-1 and detect the alleles of the hs1.2 enhancer.ResultsAllele distribution in healthy indiv...
