Gluten Vehicle and Placebo for Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity Assessment.

Gluten Vehicle and Placebo for Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity Assessment. Medicina (Kaunas). 2019 Apr 26;55(5): Authors: Figueroa-Salcido OG, Ontiveros N, Cabrera-Chavez F Abstract Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) is a syndrome characterized by gastrointestinal and extraintestinal manifestations triggered after gluten ingestion in the absence of celiac disease and wheat allergy. Because of the lack of biomarkers for NCGS diagnosis, the cornerstone for its assessment is a single- or double-blind placebo-controlled (DBPC) gluten challenge. However, there are some non-standardized points in the diagnostic approach proposed by the experts. This complicate comparisons among the results published by different research groups. The gluten vehicle and placebo must be indistinguishable from each other, which entails sensory and technological evaluations of the designed gluten vehicle and placebo products. At the moment, there is no standardized method for the preparation of the gluten vehicle and placebo for carrying out DBPC gluten challenges for NCGS assessment. This review focuses on the challenges that researchers have to face, either for the development of an accepted gluten vehicle and placebo or for identifying NCGS cases on the basis of DBPC gluten challenges.

Authors: Coppell KJ, Stamm RA, Sharp KP Abstract AIM: Coeliac disease (CD) is an increasingly common immune-mediated disorder. Treatment is a life-long gluten-free diet. The aim of this study was to describe the presenting symptoms, delays in diagnosis and difficulties associated with managing CD in children. METHOD: The New Zealand Coeliac Health Survey was undertaken in collaboration with Coeliac New Zealand Incorporated, whose membership was the study population. The questionnaire enquired about presenting and ongoing symptoms, and challenges associated with treatment. Children aged

Authors: Toda M Abstract Rice (Oryza sativa) is one of the most important food crops in the world, and the effect of its consumption on human health is of great concern. Evidence has accumulated that rice contains several components, such as γ-oryzanol and rice bran fibers, which modulate the immune system. In addition, rice has other immunologically beneficial characteristics. It has a low allergenic potential and is gluten-free, reducing the risk of development of food allergies and diseases related to gluten sensitivity such as coeliac disease. This review presents the recent advances in our understanding ...

Gluten-related disorders (GRDs) are a group of immune-mediated diseases with several clinical manifestations triggered by gluten ingestion (1). The three main forms of GRDs are celiac disease (CD), wheat allergy (WA) and non-celiac gluten-sensitivity (NCGS) [1,2]. GRDs often present extraintestinal symptoms. Neurological manifestations have been reported in 10 to 22% of patients with coeliac disease (CD) and include gluten ataxia, polyneuropathy, myopathy, epilepsy, leukoencephalopathy, and headache [3].

Recent epidemiological studies suggest that non-IgE-mediated childhood food allergic disorders such as eosinophilic esophagitis (EOE), celiac disease and allergic gastroenteritis (AG), may be increasing in parallel with previously observed increases in childhood IgE-mediated food allergy (FA) and food-induced anaphylaxis (FIA)1-4. The term AG encompasses food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES), eosinophilic enteritis and colitis, food protein induced enteropathy, food hypersensitivity enteritis and colitis, but not EOE.

Conclusions: Our study confirms that CD and PWAG share comorbidities of autoimmune nature. PWAG had more autoimmune/allergy-related disorders that may be associated with non-celiac gluten sensitivity a self-justifiable reason to be on the diet.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is associated with a wide range of comorbidities, particularly allergies, but its association with nonatopic autoimmune disease is less well defined. Recent genome-wide association studies have reported shared genetic loci between AD and autoimmune diseases. In the UK, most patients with these conditions are managed in primary care, meaning general practice (GP) databases provide a rich data source for studying AD. A retrospective cohort study was undertaken to examine the association between AD and the following autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis [RA], ulcerative colitis [UC], Crohn ’s ...

Conclusions: To date, this negative association has not been described. Further studies will be necessary to elucidate the implication of this protection factor in CD. Since, until now the association between CD and allergic diseases has been poorly studied. PMID: 31361165 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
