Temporary Celiac Ganglion Block as a Test Before Celiac Ganglion Resection for Dysautonomia-Related Bowel Dysmotility
Dysautonomia is malfunction of the autonomic nervous system. It usually results from overactivity of the sympathetic portion and over-secretion of acetylcholine. Symptoms depend on the organ involved by this sympathetic overstimulation. Involvement of the gastrointestinal system results in chronic dysmotility, nausea, vomiting, food intolerance, weight loss and need for feeding tube placement and/or parenteral feeding. Autonomic celiac ganglia resection has been shown to alleviate symptoms as it interrupts the sympathetic stimulation to the gastrointestinal (GI) system, however there is no pre surgery test to confirm the diagnosis....
Teriflunomide vs. Placebo During Gluten Challenge in Celiac Disease
The investigators will see if the drug teriflunomide (which is in use in other immune disorder (multiple sclerosis)) can inhibit the immune activation in celiac disease patients during a 3 day gluten challenge. This will be measured in a blood sample.
Urinary Gluten Immunogenic Peptides Detection in Non-celiac Gluten/Wheat Sensitivity
Non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity (NCGS/NCWS) is a syndrome characterized by both intestinal (irritable bowel syndrome [IBS]-like presentation) and extraintestinal symptoms (headache, migraine, "foggy mind", depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, joint and muscle pain, leg or arm numbness, eczema or skin rash), which occur after the ingestion of gluten/wheat in subjects in which celiac disease (CD) and wheat allergy diagnosis has been previously excluded. NCGS/NCWS symptoms generally occur after the ingestion of gluten/wheat, disappear within a few days of a gluten-free diet (GFD) and quickly reappear when gluten/wheat is reintroduced....
AN-PEP on Gluten Exposure in Celiacs
The AN-PEP, an Aspergillus niger derived endopeptidase, has been developed aiming to produce a complete luminal detoxification of gluten. If AN-PEP is able to produce a complete luminal digestion of gluten in the context of the real life of celiac disease (CeD) patients is unknown. Hypothetically, AN-PEP effect could be detected by the reduction in the excretion of GIP in stool and urine. The objective of this study is to establish the effect of the daily administration of AN-PEP compared to placebo on GIP excretion in an interventional, prospective, randomized, comparative, double-blind study in conditions mimicking the real-life...
Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase IgA Antibodies
Celiac disease is the most common genetically related food intolerance, worldwide. It is an immune mediated intolerance to gluten (from wheat, barley, or rye) in genetically susceptible individuals .The disease primarily affects the small intestine, where it progressively leads to flattening of the small intestinal mucosa .
A Study of JNJ-64304500 or Guselkumab in Adult Participants With Celiac Disease
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of JNJ-64304500 or guselkumab treatment compared to placebo in participants with celiac disease.
Dose-Ranging Study of the Efficacy and Safety of TAK-101 for Prevention of Gluten-Specific T Cell Activation in Participants With Celiac Disease on a Gluten-Free Diet
The purpose of the study is to compare the number of baseline IFN-γ SFUs to the number of IFN-γ SFUs after a 6-day oral gluten challenge among participants treated with TAK-101 versus placebo.
Endoscopic Ultrasound Guided Coeliac Plexus Neurolysis for Cancer Pain
Many cancer patients suffer from intractable pain and which is often suboptimally controlled by even strong opioid analgesics. Coeliac plexus neurolysis (CPN) is procedure which intended to permanently destroy the nociceptive pathway that transmits the pain caused by the tumour. It can be with different approaches, such as percutaneously guided by fluoroscopy, echo-endoscopically or surgically with endoscopic approach being the more popular one in many centers equipped with echo-endoscopic services. The effect of CPN has been well established by some retrospective series. The overall response rate to CPN ranges from 70-90%, however, ...
Gluten Reduction and Risk of Celiac Disease
Celiac disease shares many features of other autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes. Recently, it was published that higher amounts of gluten intake increased the risk for celiac disease. Optimal amounts of gluten to be introduced during weaning have not yet been established. The aim is to investigate if a gluten-restricted diet (e.g. below 3 gram per day) will reduce the risk of develop CDA and IA in genetically predisposed children by the age of 5 years. Children who screened positive for HLA DQ2/X (X is neither DQ2 nor DQ8) in the GPPAD-02 (ASTR1D [ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier NCT03316261]) screening will be contacted by a...
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.
