Fluorescence Spectroscopy for Gut Permeability Assessment
"Leaky gut" - or, increased permeability of the intestine - involves the leakage of certain intestinal constituents (e.g. endotoxins or even bacteria) from the gut into the rest of the body. This condition is associated with many widespread diseases including coeliac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, HIV, liver cirrhosis, sepsis and environmental enteric dysfunction (EED). It has a considerable impact on quality of life and, in extreme cases (e.g. sepsis), it can even lead to death. Furthermore, in the developing world (as part of EED), it severely hampers the mental and physical development of young children. Thus, new devices that can...
Gluten Challenge Study in Celiac Disease Participants (MK-0000-402)
This is a gluten challenge study to characterize peripheral blood and intestinal gluten specific cluster of differentiation 4 glycoprotein (CD4+) thymus lymphocyte (T cell) subsets in participants with Celiac Disease
Gluten-free Oats and Gastrointestinal Health in Coeliac Disease, Part 1
The research aims to investigate the effects of gluten-free oats to the gastrointestinal health in celiac disease patients and healthy subjects. The effects of gluten-free oats on the several intestinal parameters, on the composition of the gut microbiota as well as on the metabolic profile of celiac patients and healthy controls will be studied. The study is divided into two parts. Part 1 will be conducted as a double-blind, randomized and placebo-controlled cross-over study. Healthy subjects will be recruited to the study. The aim is to recruit 15 participants for the part 1. The study will be conducted with a cross-over setting, where...
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.
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 criteria...
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
OptiCal Study -Optimizing Fecal Calprotectin Monitoring: a Clinical Study Comparing CalproLab Against PhiCal and Evaluating Its Association With the Gut Microbiome
Study Aims: To analyze stool specimens to test and validate the CalproLab assay against the predicate PhiCal in order to determine performance characteristics. And to correlate Calpro levels to the gut microbiome composition.
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...
