Intestinal Fatty Acid-binding Protein (I-FABP) Levels in Pediatric Celiac Patients
A prospective, longitudinal study meant to compare blood levels of I-FABP in pediatric celiac patients during diagnosis to levels under gluten free diet, it's correlation with traditional serology testing and questionnaire regarding patient responsiveness to the gluten free diet, and in comparison to a control group.
Latiglutenase as a Treatment for Celiac Disease
Single Center, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled, Gluten Challenge Trial in Patients with Well-Controlled Celiac Disease
Pathogenic Study of Adult Immune Enteropathies
The study focuses the mechanisms underlying the loss of intestinal homeostasis in celiac disease, refractory celiac disease and other immune diseases such as monogenic enteropathy, inflammatory bowel diseases or drug induced intestinal diseases. Mechanisms of transformation of lymphocytes leading to onset of lymphomatous complications of immune enteropathies will be investigated. Mechanisms of loss of hepatic lymphocytic homeostasis will also be assessed in liver associated diseases.
Population Study of the Prevalence of Celiac Disease and Other Gluten-dependent Disorders in Children and Adolescents
To study the prevalence and clinical features of celiac disease in children to develop new treatment approaches and rehabilitation strategies.
Preservation of Residual Beta Cell Mass and Prevention of Celiac Disease in Children With Recent Onset Type 1 Diabetes
The overall aim of this project is to investigate whether a gluten free diet after the onset of type 1 diabetes (T1D) can better preserve the remaining beta cell mass and at the same time prevent the development of Celiac Disease (CD) in these patients. Specific aims • To study whether gluten free diet during one year after the onset of diabetes influence the appearance and duration of clinical remission in children with Type 1 diabetes. New data show that a gluten free diet is beneficial concerning the insulin production after the onset of diabetes. The investigators want to investigate if gluten is a triggering protein for the...
Prevention av Autoimmunitet Med Laktobaciller
The incidence of autoimmune diseases (celiac disease, type 1 diabetes, thyroid disease) have increased over the past 30 years. Although most autoimmune diseases have a strong link to different risk genes, the rapid increase is thought to be due to changes in environmental factors. There is currently no cure for autoimmune diseases, but the treatment is lifelong and either involves suppressing the inflammation and / or substituting the organs that are affected to maintain vital functions. Being able to predict who is affected and identifying factors that trigger autoimmunity is necessary for developing new treatment methods that prevent the...
Prevention of Celiac Disease in Skåne
This study aims to investigate the impact on being on a gluten free diet the first three years of life compared to a daily intake of a probiotic supplementation or placebo on the risk of developing celiac disease autoimmunity or celiac disease in genetically susceptible children. Study participants will be randomly allocated to one of the three study groups before the age of 4 months and will remain in that group with the corresponding intervention during the three first years of life. Regular visits to a study nurse and contact with study dietician will be scheduled. The dietician will support the families in keeping the correct...
Prospective, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Crossover Study in Symptomatic CD Patients
This is a phase 2b, multicenter, prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study in symptomatic celiac disease patients attempting a GFD for at least one year prior to screening.
Radiofrequency Splanchnic Denervation Versus Retrocrural Neurolytic Celiac Block for Pancreatic Cancer Pain
The investigators will evaluate the analgesic efficacy of radiofrequency splanchnic nerve denervation versus neurolytic retrocrural celiac denervation for patients with abdominal pain due to cancer pancreas
Response to Different Wheat Genotypes in Not-celiac Wheat Sensitivity
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) is a condition where intestinal and extraintestinal symptoms are triggered by gluten ingestion in the absence of celiac disease and wheat allergy. Despite the great interest in NCGS, much remains unknown about the pathogenesis. Some studies seem to suggest that wheat components other than gluten (i.e. amylase/trypsine inhibitors, ATIs) can cause the symptoms, and therefore the term "non-celiac wheat sensitivity" (NCWS) has been proposed instead of NCGS. It is believed that this condition is worldwide increasing, due to the evolution of wheat breeding (i.e. consumption of wheats with high gluten content),...
