The prevalence of celiac disease (CD) in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D) has been reported to be 5-7 times higher than in the general population. Risk factors for co-occurrence of both diseases have not been entirely established. The aim of our study was to analyze possible impact of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I and killer cell(More)
Celiac disease (CD) is more common in individuals with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (T1D) than in the general population. HLA class II molecules DQ8 (DQB1*0302-DQA1*0301) and DQ2 (DQB1*0201-DQA1*0501) have been identified as key genetic risk factors in both diseases. While DQ8 conveys a higher risk for T1D, DQ2 is more frequent in CD. Less is known(More)
Shared susceptibility alleles in the HLA region contribute to the co-existence of type 1 diabetes (T1D) and celiac disease (CD). The aim of our study was to identify HLA genotype variations that influence co-occurrence of T1D and CD (T1D + CD) and the order of their onset. Totally 244 patients, 67 with T1D, 68 with CD and 69 with T1D + CD, (split into "T1D(More)
BACKGROUND The deficiency of SHOX gene (short stature homeobox-containing gene) has been recognized as the most frequent monogenetic cause of short stature. SHOX gene has been associated with short stature in Turner syndrome and Leri Weill dyschondrosteosis as well with non-syndromic idiopathic short stature. The aim of this study was to determine the(More)
