HLA-DQ distribution and risk assessment of celiac disease in a Spanish center.
CONCLUSIONS: there are four genetic risk categories according to the HLA-DQ genotype. The HLA-DQ7.5 genotype does not confer risk but should not be used to rule out celiac disease when a high suspicion of the disease exists. These findings could be relevant to determine when to perform serological screening in asymptomatic subjects at risk of celiac disease.

Avoiding Small Intestinal Biopsies for Diagnosis of Celiac Disease in Children: A Reliable Strategy for All Patients?
Conclusion: Limited resources in clinical settings reduce availability of EMA and genotyping, making application of EEC criteria difficult and only possible only in 15% of our patients. Within this subgroup, biopsies could be avoided in 83.3%, and 16.7% of patients with potential CD were misdiagnosed. Insufficient studies and incorrect interpretation of EEC contributed to incomplete assessment in 52 of 130 (40%) patients. The Chilean public health system is likely representative of several others present in developing and developed countries. (Source: Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition)

Protein expression was compared in biopsies collected from the same patients before and after one year treatment with gluten-free diet (n=10) or before and after three-day gluten provocation (n=4). Differential expression of proteins in particular from mature enterocytes, neutrophils, and plasma cells could distinguish untreated from treated CD mucosa, and immunoglobulin ...

Nunes, Marta Rodriguez-Quijano, Jose Maria Carrillo, Gérard Branlard, Gilberto Igrejas Background Wheat is one of the main foods of the human diet. It contains a protein complex, gluten, which is primarily responsible for the rheological behavior of wheat flours. However, it is gluten that triggers and maintains the enteropathy in celiac disease, a common autoimmune disorder of the small intestine. Individuals who suffer from celiac disease must follow a gluten-free diet, the only effectiv...

The impact of coping patterns and chronic health conditions on health-related quality of life among children and adolescents
Conclusions: The findings highlight the power of the concept of coping patterns as opposed to coping strategies to explain HRQOL of children and adolescents with chronic disease. Both types of disease (categorical approach) and coping patterns (non-categorical approach) are relevant to predicting HRQOL.What is Known:• The literature on coping has widely documented the existence of individual (unique) coping strategies.• Coping strategies are considered “useful” or “non-useful,” based on whether they increase or decrease negative outcomes caused by certain stressors, such as chronic illness...

Extra-intestinal manifestations of non-celiac gluten sensitivity: An expanding paradigm.
In conclusion, the novelty of this matter has generated an expansion of literature data with the unavoidable consequence that some reports are often based on low levels of evidence. Therefore, only studies performed on large samples with the inclusion of control groups will be able to clearly establish whether the large information from the literature regarding extra-intestinal NCGS manifestations could be supported by evidence-based agreements.

The Value and Significance of 25(OH) and 1,25(OH) vitamin D serum levels in adult coeliac patients: A review of the literature
Within the wide spectrum of symptoms and alteration of systems that characterizes CeD, several studies indicate a low-level of vitamin D, therefore recent guidelines suggest its evaluation at the time of diagnosis. This review examines the data from existing studies in which vitamin D has been assessed in CeD patients. Our review indicates that most of the studies on vitamin D in adult CeD report a 25 (OH) vitamin D deficiency at diagnosis that disappears when the patient goes on a gluten-free diet, independently of any supplementation.
