Latest Celiac Disease Research Articles


Our Letter to the Editor Advocating for Patients Published in Gastroenterology

Recently, a group of researchers published their recommendations for standardizing celiac disease clinical trials. While on the whole we agree with the content, we were dismayed to learn that no patients or patient organizations had been consulted to develop these guidelines. We are proud to say that our response, a letter to the editor, was recently published in Gastroenterology.


Multiple courses of antibiotics may play role in celiac disease development for at-risk children, study finds

If a child at risk for celiac disease is prescribed antibiotics multiple times, it may increase the chance that celiac disease will develop, according to a new study. Antibiotics were tied to an increase in a protein that loosens the connection between cells in the intestine. In the future, tests for that protein might be used to determine who is likely to develop celiac disease.


Running the numbers in celiac disease

A group of international researchers has come up with a five-point scoring system for those with celiac disease to determine the risk of having persistent intestinal damage.


Race and its impact on genetic risk and testing for celiac disease

Two separate studies related to race and potential healthcare disparities in celiac disease were presented recently as posters at Digestive Disease Week (DDW). One investigated celiac disease associated genes and the other the frequency of celiac disease testing in Black people.
