Intestinal, Systemic, and Oral Gluten-related Alterations in Patients With Nonceliac Gluten Sensitivity
GOMPT seems to be a specific tool for NCGS diagnosis, although further investigations are needed to overcome limits due to the small population studied and to contextualize GOMPT false-positive results.
Identification of a new coeliac disease subgroup: antiendomysial and anti‐transglutaminase antibodies of IgG class in the absence of selective IgA deficiency
An Identification of a new coeliac disease subgroup: antiendomysial and anti‐transglutaminase antibodies of IgG class in the absence of selective IgA deficiency.

The ability of the 31-43 sequence of the alpha-gliadin to induce EMA production suggests its involvement in the pathogenesis of CD, and may be a more useful antigenic substance than PT gliadin for both in vitro and in vivo studies of CD.
Anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies in arthritic patients: a disease-specific finding?
The aim of the present investigation was to evaluate the occurrence of anti-tTG-positive results in a cohort of arthritic patients, in whom the target organ is located at a distance from the intestine.
Anti‐endomysial antibody of IgG1 isotype detection strongly increases the prevalence of coeliac disease in patients affected by type I diabetes mellitus
It is concluded that IgG1‐EMA should also be sought whenever an IDDM1 patient undergoes screening for CD, because the prevalence value of CD increases dramatically when IgA‐EMA are also used in the screening.
Type 1 diabetes mellitus and celiac disease: endothelial dysfunction

A better metabolic control and a thromboresistant condition in adult patients with both DM1 and undiagnosed CD is observed, even if the opinion is that gluten-free diet is mandatory in all patients suffering from CD.

Organ culture with in vitro gliadin challenge is able to reproduce the results of in vivo challenge and could reduce the need for gluten challenge in celiac children.
Adult celiac disease: What is the role of MRI?

To evaluate the ability of MRI to identify intra‐ and extraintestinal findings of celiac disease in an adult population, MRI is used for the first time in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study.
Abdominal CT findings may suggest coeliac disease.
MR imaging in the evaluation of placental abruption: correlation with sonographic findings.
MR imaging can accurately depict placental abruption, with excellent interobserver agreement, and should be considered after negative US findings in the presence of late pregnancy bleeding if the diagnosis of abruption would change management.
