Effects of Probiotic Supplementation in Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity Patients

  title={Effects of Probiotic Supplementation in Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity Patients},
  author={A. Fosca and L. Polsinelli and E. Aquilio},
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) is a clinical condition characterized by gastrointestinal and extra intestinal symptoms that occur shortly after ingestion of gluten, improve or disappear when gluten is withdrawn from the diet and recur if gluten is reintroduced. NCGS patients miss the biochemical markers of celiac disease and wheat allergy. The aim of this study was to analyze the effects of oral administration of probiotics on the overall symptoms of NCGS patients. Twenty-two NCGS… Expand

Intestinal Microbiota and Probiotics in Celiac Disease
This review aims to discuss the characteristics of the microbiota in CD subjects and the use of probiotics as a novel therapy for CD. Expand
New understanding of gluten sensitivity
Patients complain of IBS-like symptoms and extraintestinal manifestations that occur shortly after the ingestion of gluten, and symptoms improve or disappear when gluten is withdrawn from the diet, and recur if gluten is reintroduced. Expand
US perspective on gluten-related diseases
A review of current knowledge on the epidemiology of gluten-related disorders within a global context is presented, with a focus on diagnostic trends and the evaluation of potential risk factors. Expand

The capacity of probiotics to modify disease symptoms is likely to be modest and varies among probiotic strains-not all probiotics are right for all diseases. Expand
An Italian prospective multicenter survey on patients suspected of having non-celiac gluten sensitivity
This prospective survey shows that non-celiac gluten sensitivity has a strong correlation with female gender and adult age, and the prevalence of NCGS seems to be only slightly higher than that of celiac disease. Expand
Effects of probiotics on the prevention of atopic dermatitis
The effects of balancing Th1/Th2 immunity and enhancing Treg activity via the interaction of probiotics with dendritic cells have been described in vitro and in animal models, although an effect has not been demonstrated in human studies. Expand
A systematic review and meta-analysis: probiotics in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome
Probiotics may have a role in alleviating some of the symptoms of IBS, a condition for which currently evidence of efficacy of drug therapies is weak, however, as IBS is a condition that is chronic and usually intermittent longer term trials are recommended. Expand
Between Celiac Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome: The “No Man's Land” of Gluten Sensitivity
The hypothesis that GS and post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) provide two triggers that can explain at least part of the spectrum that constitutes IBS is discussed, further advancing an understanding of the role of mucosal responses to luminal factors in FBDs. Expand
Diagnosis and classification of celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.
New diagnostic guidelines developed by ESPGHAN emphasize the crucial role of serological tests in the diagnostic process of symptomatic subjects, and of the detection of HLA DQ2/DQ8 alleles in defining a diagnosis in asymptomatic subjects belonging to at-risk groups. Expand
Spectrum of gluten-related disorders: consensus on new nomenclature and classification
This review will summarize the current knowledge about the three main forms of gluten reactions: allergic (wheat allergy), autoimmune (celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis and gluten ataxia) and possibly immune-mediated (gluten sensitivity), and also outline pathogenic, clinical and epidemiological differences and propose new nomenclature and classifications.
