CONCLUSIONS: the prevalence of CeD in our patients with IBD was higher than that reported in the literature for other series of patients with IBD. A combination of anti-tTG testing and CeD genetics may screen patients for CeD in this population of patients with IBD. PMID: 31718200 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We describe a case of a 76-year-old Caucasian male who presented to the Emergency Department (ED) with weight loss, abdominal pain, and multiple episodes of vomiting and diarrhea. He underwent a laparotomy with an intraluminal mass seen in the cecum. Histology showed atypical intermediate- to large-sized cells involving the full thickness of the bowel wall with numerous mitotic figures and apoptotic bodies. The adjacent uninvolved mucosa demonstrated villous blunting, increased intraepithelial lymphocytes, crypt elongation, and lamina propria plasmacytosis, consistent with the celiac enteropathy. Rare large transformed cel...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewFunctional dyspepsia is a common condition, and the condition is defined by symptoms using Rome IV criteria. This review addresses the issue of functional dyspepsia in elderly patients, epidemiology, investigation, and treatment.Recent FindingsRecent studies show that while the prevalence of dyspepsia declines in the elderly, it is still prevalant investigations to confirm the diagnosis (including mandatory upper gastrointestinal endoscopy) must exclude organic disease. These include ulcers (particularly associated with nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs),Helicobacter pylori pathologies, cancer, c...

Abstract GWAS studies have identified variant rs17810546 in a non-coding region on chromosome 3 as a risk factor for several auto-immune diseases, including Celiac Disease. In silico analysis reveals that this variant is located in a transcription regulatory site. By means of reporter constructs we show that this region can override the expression rate of a gene as determined by its native promoter and that this modulation is influenced by the genetic composition of the haplotype which rs17810546 forms with a nearby other variant, rs761008. Secondly, we present data that this genetically imprinted modulation could...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewGluten is a commonly ingested polymeric protein found in wheat, barley, and rye that has gained recent notoriety because of its relationship to disease and health. Avoidance of gluten is appropriate in patients with a diagnosed gluten –related disorder and may have treatment implications in other diseases of the digestive tract. This review highlights current knowledge of gluten related disorders and the use of a gluten-free diet in gastrointestinal disease management.Recent FindingsGluten-free diets should be used in patients with a diagnosed gluten –related disorder including celiac d...
