Coeliac disease is an immune-mediated disorder resulting in nutrient malabsorption now thought to have a prevalence of between 1:100 and 1:200 in the UK population. Symptoms can include diarrhoea, steatorrhoea, abdominal bloating, cramps, flatulence, weight loss, weakness and fatigue. In addition to the morbidity associated with presenting symptoms, patients are also at increased risk of metabolic bone disease, enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma and other malignancies (gastric, oesophageal… Expand
The molecular investigation of celiac disease
TLDR
The historical, clinical and genetic aspects of this disease are provided and numerous findings from recent molecular immunology studies are highlighted. Expand
Recent advances in coeliac disease
TLDR
A piece of music directed by gluten and performed by the orchestra of immune cells of both innate and acquired immunity, on a stage set by genes and environmental factors, with a resulting synthesis of proinflammatory cytokines which change a velvety small bowel mucosa into a flat moon surface. Expand
The progression of coeliac disease: its neurological and psychiatric implications
TLDR
The present review discusses the state of the art regarding neurological and psychiatric complications in CD and highlights the evidence supporting a role for GFD in reducing neurological and Psychiatric complications. Expand
Celiac Disease—Multidisciplinary Approaches
TLDR
Biochemical studies on the structures of CD-toxic proteins and peptides and the genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms of CD have increased the understanding of CD pathogenesis considerably during the last two decades. Expand
The Biochemical Basis of Celiac Disease
TLDR
Celiac disease is an inflammatory disorder of the upper small intestine triggered by the ingestion of wheat, rye, barley, and possibly oat products, and the precipitating factors of toxic cereals are the storage proteins, termed gluten in the field of CD. Expand
Possible drug targets for celiac disease
TLDR
This review discusses both molecular and cellular strategies to treat CD, including the use of proteolytic enzymes active on gluten peptides, antibodies neutralising IL-15 and IFN-γ, drugs targeting HLA, regulatory cytokines and T cells, and several new promising perspectives for therapeutic intervention.

Gluten-free diet adherence in adult coeliac disease : exploring multiple perspectives
TLDR
A complex interplay of factors associated with adherence to a gluten-free diet and their relative importance is identified and used to inform interventions to improve dietary adherence in adults with coeliac disease. Expand
Autoantibodies in Gastrointestinal Autoimmune Diseases
TLDR
The current evidence regarding the pathogenic role, available methods for detection, diagnostic sensitivity and specificity, and up-to-date recommendations for clinical use of the main gastrointestinal autoantibodies that associate with IBD, celiac disease, AIH, PBC, and PSC is reviewed in this chapter. Expand
Occurrence of Nonceliac Gluten Sensitivity in Patients with Allergic Disease
TLDR
A nonceliac gluten-sensitive enteropathy (NCGSE) commonly occurs in allergic patients and it is recommended that biopsy should be part of the routine investigation of allergic disease to offer the benefits of treatment with a GFD to the patients. Expand
Occurrence of Nonceliac Gluten Sensitivity in Patients with Allergic Disease
TLDR
The positive patients, who, after the GS diagnosis, followed a GFD, exhibited control of symptoms as well as stabilization of the hematological parameters even if allergic, whereas anemia of inflammatory origin represented the predominant complaint in the authors' subjects. Expand

The pathogenesis of coeliac disease.
TLDR
The sensitivity and specificity of the investigative modalities available for clinical use are assessed, and the future of coeliac disease looks promising for patients with several novel therapies on the horizon. Expand
Overview and pathogenesis of celiac disease.
TLDR
The proportion of individuals presenting with more dramatic symptoms of diarrhea, severe weight loss, and malnutrition is decreasing when compared with those presenting with mild or minimal symptoms or asymptomatic individuals in which disease is discovered only when investigating nongastrointestinal symptoms. Expand
The immune recognition of gluten in coeliac disease
TLDR
The present review finds that gluten peptides are able to trigger two immunological pathways: one is thought to be a rapid effect on the epithelium that involves the innate immune response and the other represents the adaptive immune response involving CD4+ T cells in the lamina propria that recognize gluten epitopes processed and presented by antigen presenting cells. Expand
Clinical features and diagnosis of celiac disease.
TLDR
Celiac disease is a chronic enteropathy caused by intolerance to gluten that is associated with significant morbidity and increased mortality, largely owing to the development of enteropathy-associated intestinal lymphoma. Expand
High Frequency of Coeliac Disease among Patients with Autoimmune Adrenocortical Failure
TLDR
The risk of developing CD seems to be higher than can be explained by the common DR3-DQ2 association alone, and Addison patients should be screened for the presence of CD on a regular basis. Expand
Coeliac disease associated with auto-immune thyroiditis, Sjogren's syndrome, and a lymphocytotoxic serum factor.
TLDR
A patient who presented with an exacerbation of coeliac disease symptoms, following initiation of treatment for an auto-immune thyroiditis was found to have a lymphocytotoxic serum factor that completely prevented phytohaemagglutinin and allogeneic stimulation of her lymphocytes in vitro. Expand
Celiac Disease Associated With Autoimmune Myocarditis
TLDR
A common autoimmune process toward antigenic components of the myocardium and small bowel can be found in >4% of the patients with myocarditis; in these patients, immunosuppression and a gluten-free diet can be effective therapeutic options. Expand
Association of celiac disease and intestinal lymphomas and other cancers.
TLDR
Enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma (EATL) is a rare form of high-grade, T- cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the upper small intestine that is specifically associated with Celiac disease. Expand
Prevalence of celiac disease in at-risk and not-at-risk groups in the United States: a large multicenter study.
TLDR
The results suggest that CD occurs frequently not only in patients with gastrointestinal symptoms, but also in first- and second-degree relatives and patients with numerous common disorders even in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms. Expand
A common CTLA4 haplotype associated with coeliac disease
TLDR
Loss of tolerance to dietary antigens in coeliac disease may be mediated in part by heritable variants in co-signalling genes regulating T-cell responses, and contains multiple alleles reported to affect immunological function. Expand
