Among gluten-related disorders, gluten sensitivity is an emerging entity that is characterized by a wide array of manifestations. In particular, patients complain of IBS-like symptoms and extraintestinal manifestations that occur shortly after the ingestion of gluten. Symptoms improve or disappear when gluten is withdrawn from the diet, and recur if gluten is reintroduced. Laboratory tests are usually unhelpful for diagnosis, although ∼50% of patients are positive for IgG antigliadin antibodies… Expand
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Is it in the gluten or the grain?
TLDR
The current knowledge on non-celiac gluten sensitivity is reviewed, and potential pathogenic pathways of different gluten related disorders are outlined in order to gain clues about the pathophysiology of this novel condition. Expand
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity: questions still to be answered despite increasing awareness
TLDR
The increasing number of patients worldwide who are sensitive to dietary gluten without evidence of celiac disease or wheat allergy has contributed to the identification of a new gluten-related syndrome defined as non-celiac gluten sensitivity, a condition that has global acceptance but has only a few certainties and many unresolved issues. Expand
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity: a work-in-progress entity in the spectrum of wheat-related disorders.
TLDR
Although currently limited to a research setting, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over trial strategy is recommended to confirm the diagnosis of non-celiac gluten sensitivity, which occurs mainly in young women, being rare in children. Expand
The spectrum of noncoeliac gluten sensitivity
TLDR
The characteristic phenotype of individuals with NCGS is described as well as the symptom manifestations commonly reported after gluten exposure, which include intestinal symptoms consistent with IBS, and extraintestinal symptoms such as neurological dysfunction, psychological disturbances, fibromyalgia and skin rash. Expand
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity: an emerging syndrome with many unsettled issues
TLDR
Clinical and laboratory studies aimed at clarifying the pathophysiological, clinical and laboratory features of non-celiac gluten sensitivity will help a better management of patients with this novel and intriguing clinical entity. Expand
Non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS).
TLDR
The manifestations of NCGS are focused on, areas of controversy, major advances and future trends will be discussed, and the possibility that, beside gluten and wheat amylase-trypsin inhibitors (ATI), low-fermentable, poorly-absorbed, short-chain carbohydrates can contribute to symptoms experienced by NCGS patients is raised.

Where’s the evidence for gluten sensitivity?

TLDR
Genetically, coeliac disease and gluten sensitivity partially share the same susceptibility, although the HLA-DQ2/DQ8 haplotype is not necessary to develop gluten sensitivity. Expand
Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity among Patients Perceiving Gluten-Related Symptoms
TLDR
Eighty six percent of patients reporting gluten-related symptoms have neither NCGS, nor CD, nor WA, and self-perceived gluten- related symptoms are rarely indicative of the presence of NCGS. Expand
Coeliac disease and noncoeliac gluten sensitivity.
TLDR
Randomized trials on noncoeliac gluten sensitivity in children are lacking and are hardly needed to evaluate its role in paediatric patients with gastroenterology to avoid the use of unnecessary restrictive diets in children and interference with proper diagnosis of coeliac disease. Expand
Non-coeliac gluten sensitivity: A review of the literature
TLDR
Despite recent advances in characterising non-coeliac gluten sensitivity as a clinical entity and gaining novel insights into its pathogenesis, further studies are needed to better understand its etiology and mechanism and to establish specific biomarkers. Expand

[Celiac disease and "gluten sensitivity"].
TLDR
Cases of gluten-sensitivity appear very interesting in the search of histological markers with elevated specificity, which are able to identify slight and early gluten dependent enteropathy, especially in at risk patients for celiac disease even before classical autoantibodies appear. Expand
Cutting-Edge Issues in Celiac Disease and in Gluten Intolerance
TLDR
Some relevant aspects related to the laboratory diagnosis of CD and, more extensively, of gluten intolerance are considered, such as the best combination of tests for early and accurate diagnosis, the diagnostic role of new tests for detecting antibodies against neoepitopes produced by the transglutaminase–gliadin complex, the forms of non-celiac gluten intolerance (gluten sensitivity), and the use and significance of measuring cytokines in CD. Expand
Serological Tests in Gluten Sensitivity (Nonceliac Gluten Intolerance)
TLDR
The serological pattern of GS is characterized by IgG AGA positivity in more than half of cases associated to IgA AGA in a few patients, but without EmA, tTGA, and DGP-AGA, which are the specific markers of celiac disease. Expand
Editorial: Can Gluten Contribute to Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
  • E. Verdu

TLDR
Some patients with IBS symptoms exhibit immunological evidence of gluten sensitivity but have no overt intestinal mucosal injury and respond symptomatically to exclusion of gluten from the diet, suggesting gluten sensitivity may be involved in the pathogenesis of a subgroup of IBS patients. Expand
Between Celiac Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome: The “No Man's Land” of Gluten Sensitivity
TLDR
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
Antibodies in celiac disease: implications beyond diagnostics
TLDR
The article summarizes the diagnostic utility of different celiac-related antibodies and discusses their roles in the pathogenesis of the disease. Expand
Divergence of gut permeability and mucosal immune gene expression in two gluten-associated conditions: celiac disease and gluten sensitivity
TLDR
This study shows that the two gluten-associated disorders, CD and GS, are different clinical entities, and it contributes to the characterization of GS as a condition associated with prevalent gluten-induced activation of innate, rather than adaptive, immune responses in the absence of detectable changes in mucosal barrier function. Expand
Celiac disease: from pathogenesis to novel therapies.
TLDR
Based on the advanced understanding of the pathogenesis of celiac disease, targeted nondietary therapies have been devised, and some are already in phase 1 or 2 clinical trials. Expand
Does cryptic gluten sensitivity play a part in neurological illness?
TLDR
The data suggest that gluten sensitivity is common in patients with neurological disease of unknown cause and may have aetiological significance. Expand
Predictors of clinical response to gluten-free diet in patients diagnosed with diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
C celiac disease-associated serum IgG and HLA-DQ2 expression can identify likely responders to gluten-free diet in d-IBS patients. Expand
