Objective. To evaluate the rectal mucosal response to gluten as an indication of gluten sensitivity in patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS). Material and methods. Rectal challenges with wheat gluten were performed in 20 patients with pSS and 18 healthy control subjects. Fifteen hours after challenge the mucosal production of nitric oxide (NO) was measured. Results. Five patients with pSS had a significant increase in the luminal release of NO after the rectal gluten challenge… 
Gluten sensitivity in patients with IgA nephropathy.
TLDR
It is concluded that approximately one-third of IgAN patients have a rectal mucosal sensitivity to gluten, but without signs of coeliac disease, and it is hypothesize that such sub-clinical inflammation to gluten might be involved in the pathogenesis of IgAn in a subgroup of patients.
Celiac disease and Sjögren’s syndrome: A case report and review of literature
TLDR
A review of existing data in the literature regarding the association of the two diseases, summarizing prevalence studies of CD in SS patients and the other way around is presented, highlighting clinically relevant unanswered questions.
Self-reported food intolerance and mucosal reactivity after rectal food protein challenge in patients with rheumatoid arthritis
TLDR
Perceived FI is reported frequently by RA patients, with a prevalence similar to that reported previously in the general population, and mucosal reactivity to CM and gluten is seen in a minor fraction of RA patients and is not related to the frequently perceived intolerance to these proteins.
Gluten sensitivity: problems of an emerging condition separate from celiac disease

TLDR
It is time to not only recognize, but to treat and further research gluten sensitivity, as unconfirmed environmental factors continue to spread this problem further into the general population.
Gastrointestinal and hepatic manifestations of Sjogren syndrome.

TLDR
Oral involvement in SS is mainly characterized by dryness, with a wide spectrum of symptoms, from mild-to-severe xerostomia with dysgeusia and tooth decay, which does not correlate with the reduced salivary flow rate or the dysmotility.
Cow's milk protein sensitivity assessed by the mucosal patch technique is related to irritable bowel syndrome in patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome
TLDR
It is observed that irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)‐like symptoms are frequent complaints in this patient group and a role of food allergy in IBS has been proposed.
Early Developing Celiac Disease in Children With Cerebral Palsy
TLDR
1 child with CP had IgA colocalizing with TG2 in the small-bowel mucosa, suggesting CD at an early stage, compared with the majority of children with CP, who have neither classical nor early developing CD.
Increased Prevalence of Antibodies Against Dietary Proteins in Children and Young Adults With Cerebral Palsy
TLDR
Elevated levels of IgG against dietary antigens were more frequent in the CP group compared with controls, and particularly in the tetraplegic and dyskinetic CP subtypes with the most severe neurologic handicap and undernourishment.

    Sjögren’s Syndrome
  • 2011
Primary Sjögren’s syndrome (1° SS) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by dry eyes (keratoconjunctivitis sicca) and dry mouth due to lymphocytic infiltrates of lacrimal and salivary glands.
Extraintestnal Manifestatons and Associated Diseases
TLDR
The implementaton of a gluten-free diet (GFD) improves the overall clinical development and the evoluton of associated diseases, and in some cases, such as in iron defciency anemia, the GFD contributes to its disappearance.

Gluten sensitivity in the rectal mucosa of first-degree relatives of celiac disease patients.
TLDR
This study characterizes a subgroup of relatives of Celiac patients who show mucosal evidence of sensitization after local instillation of gluten in the rectum but who have no other features of celiac disease.
Gluten Sensitivity in Patients With Primary Biliary Cirrhosis
TLDR
Feature of gluten sensitivity was detected in a high proportion of patients with primary biliary cirrhosis, and despite evidence of gluten intolerance, patients had minimal or no symptoms characteristic of celiac disease.
Coeliac disease in Sjögren's syndrome—a study of 111 Hungarian patients
TLDR
Recommendation: screening, follow-up, and regular gastrointestinal care of SS patients to identify CD cases and help them to avoid severe malnutrition and intestinal malignancies.
Autoantibodies to tissue transglutaminase in Sjögren's syndrome and related rheumatic diseases.
TLDR
Anti-tTG ELISA is a reliable method to indicate a coexisting diagnosis of CD in patients with SS and the frequency of false positive tTG tests in any of the systemic rheumatic diseases is not significantly greater than in controls.
Celiac disease and markers of celiac disease latency in patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome
TLDR
The findings show a close association between Sjögren's syndrome and celiac disease, and an ongoing inflammation is often present in the small bowel mucosa.
In siblings of celiac children, rectal gluten challenge reveals gluten sensitization not restricted to celiac HLA.
TLDR
A significant increment in the absolute number of intraepithelial lymphocytes was noted in patients with celiac disease but not in controls, and immunohistochemical analysis showed a significant increase in CD3+ and gamma delta + cells, with the gamma delta/CD3 ratio remaining unchanged after challenge.

Kinetics of mucosal granulocyte activation after gluten challenge in coeliac disease
TLDR
There is a pronounced neutrophil activation in coeliac patients after rectal gluten challenge and this activation is apparent 4 h after challenge and remains for at least 48 h.
