Imaging the Duodenum Using an Optical Frequency Domain Imaging OFDI Capsule
The study is being done to assess the tolerability and feasibility of a tethered OFDI capsule to image the duodenum. A total of 24 subjects will be asked to swallow the tethered capsule, while they are awake and unsedated and ask for their feedback. Images will be taken using the OFDI system while the capsule travels from the esophagus into the stomach and into the duodenum.
Impact of a Gluten-free Diet on Quality of Life in Patients With Axial Spondyloarthritis.
Subclinical intestinal inflammation and gut dysbiosis have been reported in patients with spondyloarthritis (SpA). In common practice, rheumatologists are increasingly confronted with patients with inflammatory rheumatism who are on gluten-free diets (GFDs), despite the lack of reliable data from controlled studies. This study aims to determine the impact of a GFD on the quality of life of patients with axial SpA.
Improved Diagnostics of Celiac Disease in Children
The main purpose of this study is to improve the diagnostics of celiac disease and reduce the need for invasive endoscopic studies in children. Further, the investigators aim to investigate the natural history and risk of complications in children with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity and to create a large scientific database.
Inflammatory Back Pain and Gluten Free Diet
Articular involvement is the most frequent extra-intestinal manifestation of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). IBD-related spondyloarthropathy is mainly characterised by axial involvement (including inflammatory back pain, isolated sacroiliitis and ankylosing spondylitis) but may also be associated with peripheral symptoms (i.e peripheral arthritis, dactylitis and enthesopathy, such as Achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and chest wall pain). In particular, inflammatory back pain (IBP) is characterised by an insidious onset, improves after exercise but not with rest, and is associated with morning stiffness. Up to now, several...
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.
Physical Fitness in Celiac Disease Patients - the Effect of a Gluten Free Diet
Evaluating the effect of Celiac disease (CD) and gluten free diet (GFD) on physical fitness parameters among CD subjects. The CD subjects will be compared to healthy controls.
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...
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 ...
