Coeliac disease may have an ancient history dating back to the 1st and 2nd centuries AD. The first clear description was given by Samuel Gee in 1888. He suggested that dietary treatment might be of benefit. In the early 20th century various diets were tried, with some success, but without clear recognition of the toxic components. The doctoral thesis of Wim Dicke of 1950 established that exclusion of wheat, rye and oats from the diet led to dramatic improvement. The toxicity was shown to be a… Expand
Coeliac disease: an old or a new disease? History of a pathology
TLDR
Whether the incidence of the celiac disease is actually increased or if has been considered less frequent for the lower valuation of the signs once deemed more atypical, but currently considered preliminary indicative of the pathology is investigated. Expand
Ages of celiac disease: from changing environment to improved diagnostics.
TLDR
The different periods of CD experience are described, and further developments for the next celiac age will be proposed. Expand
Origin of celiac disease: how old are predisposing haplotypes?
TLDR
This is the first report showing the presence of a HLA haplotype compatible for CD in archaeological specimens and displayed HLA DQ 2.5, the haplotype associated to the highest risk of CD. Expand
The safety of oats in the dietary treatment of coeliac disease
  • E. Richman
  • Medicine
  • Proceedings of the Nutrition Society
  • 2012
TLDR
Research suggests that the risk from consuming oats may be less harmful than first thought; however, may vary according to the strain of oat. Expand
Back to the roots: dental calculus analysis of the first documented case of coeliac disease
TLDR
Dental calculus of a Roman woman, supposed to be the first historical evidence of coeliac disease, was subjected to archaeobotanical investigations for reconstructing diet and phytotherapeutic practices and provided information about the key role of the ethnobotany in Roman Imperial age. Expand
Chapter 24 – Celiac Disease
TLDR
Advances in serological testing have improved the management of celiac disease, and, in recent years, diagnosis can be performed in some patient groups without the need for intestinal biopsies, making novel therapeutic strategies a major need in the field. Expand
Introduction of oats in the diet of individuals with celiac disease: a systematic review.
TLDR
It is concluded that the majority of people with celiac disease can tolerate moderate amounts of pure oats and the incorporation of oats into a gluten-free diet provides high fiber and vitamin B content, increased palatability, and beneficial effects on cardiovascular health. Expand
Extraintestinal manifestations of coeliac
TLDR
An increased awareness among medical practitioners of the variety of extraintestinal manifestations of coeliac disease is essential to improve diagnosis and treatment. Expand
The gluten‐free diet: an historical perspective and its use by people without coeliac disease
TLDR
The increased awareness of coeliac disease among health care providers has been matched by that of the general public, leading to greater commercial availability of (more palatable) glutenfree foods, and retail sales of glutenfree products doubled between 2011 and 2016 and are expected to continue growing worldwide.

Extraintestinal manifestations of coeliac disease

An increased awareness among medical practitioners of the variety of extraintestinal manifestations of coeliac disease is essential to improve diagnosis and treatment. Expand

7 Coeliac disease in adults
TLDR
Non-invasive screening tests, such as anti-gliadin and anti-endomysium antibody estimation, should be used systematically in groups considered to be at risk of coeliac disease and patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, iron-deficiency anaemia, epilepsy with cerebral calcification, recurrent aphthous stomatitis and dental enamel hypoplasia. Expand
A case of adult coeliac disease resistant to treatment.
  • Medicine
  • British medical journal
  • 1968
TLDR
The patient became progressively unwell with loss of weight, vague abdominal pains, and later some diarrhoea in 1953, and was admitted to Chelmsford Hospital, where he was found to have a megaloblastic anae, free gastric acid, and steatorrhoea. Expand
Malignancy in coeliac disease--effect of a gluten free diet.
TLDR
The results indicate that for coeliac patients who have taken a GFD for five years or more the risk of developing cancer over all sites is not increased when compared with the general population, and give further support for advising all patients to adhere to a strict G FD for life. Expand
Latent coeliac disease.
TLDR
Small bowel villous atrophy with crypt hyperplasia compatible with CD was found and late-developing mucosal atrophy in CD (latent CD) may be much more common than previously assumed. Expand
Coeliac disease
TLDR
The Marsh classification of intestinal coeliac lesions, as modified by Oberhuber et al, is used by most pathologists to evaluate the intestinal lesions of patients with CD, both for diagnosis and to assess the regression of the lesions after a gluten free diet. Expand
Oats induced villous atrophy in coeliac disease
TLDR
Oats were well tolerated by most patients but several reported initial abdominal discomfort and bloating, and five of the patients showed positive levels of interferon γ mRNA after challenge, some concerns therefore remain with respect to the safety of oats for coeliacs. Expand
Recent advances in coeliac disease
TLDR
Despite the encouraging progress that has taken place in genetic and immunological knowledge of coeliac disease, early introduction of a gluten-free diet remains the cornerstone of treatment and alternatives aimed at altering the toxicity of cereal proteins are now looking more promising. Expand
Coeliac disease and oats: a systematic review
TLDR
Patients with coeliac disease wishing to consume a diet containing oats should therefore receive regular follow-up, including small bowel biopsy at a specialist clinic for life. Expand
Ulceration of the small intestine complicating celiac disease
TLDR
A 60-year-old white male was admitted to University Hospital with a 20-year history of intermittent diarrhea of foamy, foul-smelling, floating stools, lower abdominal cramps, and rectal flatus which was interpreted as suggesting early granulomatous disease of the small intestine. Expand
The smaller size of the 'coeliac iceberg' in adults.
TLDR
This study shows that the size of the submerged part of the 'coeliac iceberg' is perhaps smaller in the adult population and suggests a linear trend towards a lower coeliac disease prevalence as age increases. Expand
