No-biopsy Approach in Celiac Disease: Cut-off Points for IgA Anti-tissue Transglutaminase Assays
The main objective of this multicenter and observational study is to define the optimal threshold of different commercially available IgA anti-transglutaminase (tTG-IgA) antibody assays for celiac disease diagnosis (CD) avoiding the need for an intestinal biopsy. The main questions to be answered are: - Is the anti-tTG-IgA titer cut-off above 10 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) useful in all anti-tTG IgA assays? - Is the diagnostic performance of the newly defined cut-offs of anti-tTG-IgA the same in all the evaluated assays? - Is the dynamic of the anti-tTG-IgA levels after the introduction of...
Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation and Tear Film Quality in Celiac Patients
The study aims to determine the effectiveness on the tear film quality and symptoms related with dry eye disease in patients with 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.
Pilot Study for the Evaluation of Food Choices in Patients With Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (MICI2021)
This project is a pilot study exploring the effects of dietary choices and quantitative digestion of gluten ingested by individuals with IBD compared to a control population. The aim of the study is to evaluate for the first time in an Italian population of subjects with IBD the presence of a diet based on GFD (gluten free diet).
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 ...
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...
Probiotic Blend for Celiac Disease
The objective of the study is to develop a probiotic product (B. longum CCT 1934; B. lactis CCT 7858; L. rhamnosus CCT 7863; S. thermophilus ATCC 19258) to reduce the symptoms caused by celiac disease and concomitantly improve the quality of life of patients. To achieve the objective, 118 volunteers of both sexes will be included, randomly distributed into two groups: Test group (n=59): Volunteers supplemented with the probiotic product (Bifidobacterium longum CCT 1934; Bifidobacterium lactis CCT 7858; Lactobacillus rhamnosus CCT 7863 ; Streptococcus thermophilus ATCC 19258) Final concentration: 1 x 1010 CFU/ day) and Placebo group...
PRV-015 in Gluten-free Diet Non-responsive Celiac Disease
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of PRV-015 in adult patients with non-responsive celiac disease (NRCD) who are on a gluten-free diet (GFD).
Rapid Technique for the Detection of Intestinal Anti-transglutaminase Antibodies
Intestinal Celiac Disease (CD)-antibodies have been described as the best marker to reveal progression toward villous atrophy and could become the diagnostic marker to make prompt diagnosis in the wide clinical spectrum of CD reducing the delay in diagnosis and treatment. The introduction of either anti-endomysial antibodies (EMA) assay or rapid anti-Transglutaminase 2 (TG2) test on supernatant of mechanically lysed biopsy samples in the clinical practice would improve the diagnosis of CD, especially in clinically challenging scenarios. The availability of an accurate test for identifying intestinal CD-antibodies that do not need the...
RCT: Effect of Late vs Early Introduction of Gluten-free Oats on Patients With Newly Diagnosed Celiac Disease.
The investigators are conducting a pilot study to investigate the impact of late compared to early introduction of gluten-free oats on gut symptoms, nutrition status, celiac activity and quality of life in patients with a recent diagnosis of celiac disease. Pilot study means that it will recruit a low number of participants to see if it is possible to perform the study, and to estimate how many participants will be needed for the large study. The study will collect information through questionnaires that assess gut symptoms, quality of life, mood changes and dietary patterns. Moreover, the study will collect data on tests done during ...
