Mosaic-like gene deletion and duplication pattern shaping the immune system discovered
(Bar-Ilan University) A team of researchers from Bar-Ilan University has developed a computational tool for analyzing genetic changes related to the immune system. With this new development, the onset of many autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and celiac disease, infectious diseases, such as hepatitis C and flu, and various forms of cancer may be predicted.

Researchers Think Some Food Additives May Contribute To Celiac Disease
BOSTON (CBS) – New research suggests that a common food additive may contribute to or even cause celiac disease and experts are calling for warnings on food labels until further research is done. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder where gluten causes the immune system to attack the gut. While genetics play a role, what actually triggers celiac disease is unclear. Now researchers believe food additives may contribute, in particular, microbial transglutaminase, which is used in the processing of sausages, cheese, bread and other products. More research is needed to determine whether this food additive is a direc...

Towards a treatment for gluten intolerance
(EMBO) Celiac disease is a severe autoimmune disorder of the intestine. It occurs when people develop sensitivity to gluten, a substance found in wheat, rye, and barley. An international research team from Italy and France has now uncovered a new molecular player in the development of gluten intolerance. Their discovery, published in The EMBO Journal, suggests potential targets for the development of therapeutic approaches for the disease. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)
