Is the double gene dose of DQ2.5 or DQ2.5/DQ2.2 an involved factor in the clinical features of celiac disease?
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]

Abstract Chronic urticaria is an uncommon disorder in children but can present considerable morbidity, as well as frustration for the healthcare provider and parent. The prevalence is 0.1-0.3% but can vary considerably by country. Chronic spontaneous urticaria (no identifiable cause) is responsible for 70-80% of chronic urticaria, about half of this due to a subtype called chronic autoimmune urticaria identified by the presence of autoantibodies to IgE or the IgE receptor. Chronic urticaria that is triggered by external physical stimuli is called chronic inducible urticaria and is present in another 15-20%. Allerg...

Conclusions The long-term risks of autoimmune disorders are significantly higher in patients with allergic diseases. Allergic diseases and autoimmune disorders show age- and sex-related clustering patterns.
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
Celiac disease doesn't discriminate, according to specialists, who acknowledge that people of all sizes can be diagnosed.Medscape Medical News
BD is a 32-year-old man with a history of Crohn ’s disease, EGID, and celiac disease who presented to our clinic for eosinophilia. This case illustrates that TNF-α therapy can contribute to eosinophilia and the development of EGID in Crohn's disease.
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 .
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.
