  • International Journal of Celiac Disease: Four Year Interval Summary

    • Authors: Aaron Lerner; Matthias Torsten
      Pages: 1 - 3
      Abstract: International Journal of Celiac Disease (IJCD) is an international clinical and scientific journal that aims to cover the multiple aspects of celiac disease (CD). With the renewal of the new year of 2018, the IJCD is celebrating four years of academical publications of 170 articles. The objective recognition by the medical, paramedical and the scientific community, represented by the substantial number of articles’ views, downloads, likes and citations, is indicative of a proliferative and successful journal, at least for its first four years.

  • Enzyme Therapy that Can Digest the Toxic Motifs of Gluten as an Aid in the
           Management of Celiac Disease

    • Authors: Finlay Macrae AO
      Pages: 4 - 6
      Abstract: For the first time since discovery of celiac disease and introduction of gluten-free diet (GFD) there are some treatments that could be called adjuncts to the GFD for the management of celiac disease (CD) and dermatitis herpetiformis (DH). The most clinically advanced approaches are based on enzymatic detoxification of traces of gluten often present in seemingly gluten-free foods. Maintenance of GDF is difficult for many patients due to undeclared levels of gluten even in “gluten free” products. Enzyme supplementation enables detoxification of “hidden” gluten and guards against gluten before it can damage intestinal mucosa and stimulate the immune system. Controversy rests as to whether such advances should be encouraged for patients with celiac disease, whose behaviour then might impact on their commitment to maintain a gluten free diet.

  • Celiac Disease a Road Paved with Many Obstacles. Differential Diagnosis in
           Children

    • Authors: Sur M. Lucia; Colceriu Marius, Cornel Aldea, Sur Genel, Floca Emanuela
      Pages: 7 - 10
      Abstract: Celiac disease (CD), also known as gluten-sensitive enteropathy or celiac sprue, is defined as a chronic, multifactorial, immune-mediated condition affecting small intestine in genetically susceptible children and adults. Gluten-sensitive enteropathy is characterized by heterogeneous clinical manifestations of variable severity that can occur at any age. For patients with prompt diagnosis and correct treatment the prognosis is excellent. Therefore, CD needs a quick diagnosis in order to start the treatment. Because of the wide range of signs and symptoms, an accurate differential diagnosis is required.

  • Comparing the Cost Effectiveness of a Celiac Disease Panel to a Testing
           Cascade

    • Authors: Caleb Bazyler; Kevin Breuel
      Pages: 11 - 13
      Abstract: Recent reductions in healthcare funding in the United States has pressured clinical laboratories to provide the same quality of diagnostic testing with fewer resources. Testing cascades have been developed to assist in the diagnosis of various illnesses, which use fewer tests and subsequently reduce costs. However, the cost effectiveness of a celiac disease (CD) testing cascade compared to a panel is currently unknown. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine if a CD testing cascade was equivalent to a panel in identifying patients deemed likely for CD, and to compare their cost effectiveness in a sample of symptomatic patients from Northeast Tennessee. A retrospective analysis using a CD testing cascade was performed on 933 outpatient samples referred to our laboratory from 2012 to 2017 with a request for a celiac disease serology panel. The seroprevalence of CD for the panel and the cascade were the same in this population (1.82%, 95% binomial confidence interval: 1.06% to 2.90%). The total cost of the CD cascade was 268% less than the cost of the panel resulting in a savings of $44,705, which translates to a savings of $47.92/patient. Based on these findings, we recommend utilization of the cascade to identify patients with likely CD. In the future, creative use of novel testing strategies can have significant contributions to healthcare reform and afford patients more cost-effective clinical diagnostic testing.

  • The Utility of Routine Endoscopic Distal Duodenal Biopsy in Patients with
           Irritable Bowel Syndrome for Celiac Disease Diagnosis; First Study from
           Nepal

    • Authors: Mohan Khadka
      Pages: 14 - 19
      Abstract: Aim: To investigate the utility of routine endoscopic distal duodenal biopsy in patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) for the diagnosis of Celiac Disease (CD). Method: This study was conducted at the outpatient Department of Gastroenterology at the Institute of Medicine, Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu, Nepal. One hundred patients with IBS selected by Rome III Criteria were prospectively evaluated from April 2015 through March 2016. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) was performed on all patients, with four-quadrant distal duodenal biopsies obtained from each patient. The biopsy sections were studied for Marsh-type histology, a histology characteristic of CD. Patients with Marsh-type histology had Immunoglobulin-A anti-tissue transglutaminase (IgA anti tTG) serology ordered, were recommended to start a gluten-free diet (GFD), and were followed up in clinic in 3-6 weeks. The prevalence of CD (defined as Marsh histology grade I-III with serology positive responding to GFD) was calculated in patients with IBS as a whole and among IBS subtypes. Statistical analysis was done using SPSS version 19 software (Chicago, IL, USA). Results: Of the 100 IBS patients evaluated, 50 patients had abnormal duodenal histology. Among these 50 patients, 13 had Marsh-type histology, and the remaining 37 had non-specific duodenitis. Of the 13 patients with Marsh-type histology, 4 were seropositive for CD and 9 were seronegative. The overall prevalence of CD was 4%. All 4 seropositive and 2 out of 9 seronegative patients responded to GFD in 3 to 6 weeks. Conclusion: Routine endoscopic distal duodenal biopsy is useful for the diagnosis of CD in patients with IBS as it could also detect the disease in patients with negative celiac serology.

      Pages: 20 - 25
      Abstract: Celiac disease (CD) is an inflammatory disorder of the small intestines which serological diagnosis has come to the forefront with the development of the immunological testing. We aimed to explore the performance characteristics of a panel of serological tests in patients with CD. We assessed the serum levels of anti-tissue transglutaminase (anti-tTG), anti-deamidated gliadin peptides (anti-DGP), anti-actin (AAA), anti-gliadin antibodies (AGA) and cytokine IL-17A by performing ELISA; and anti-tTG, AGA and anti-Saccharomyces cerevisiae antibodies (ASCA) by immunoblot in 35 newly diagnosed adult patients with biopsy-proven CD and 25 age- and sex-matched healthy persons. The average serum levels of anti-tTG, anti-DGP, AGA, AAA, and ASCA were at significantly higher levels in patients with CD compared to healthy persons (p

  • Iron refractory or Iron Resistant Iron Deficiency Anemia in Adult Celiac
           Disease Resolves with a Gluten-free Diet

    • Authors: Hugh James Freeman
      Pages: 26 - 29
      Abstract: Iron deficiency anemia is a common presentation of adult celiac disease. In a retrospective review of over 200 adults with celiac disease complicated by iron deficiency anemia, 7 patients were selected that were treated either with oral iron supplements with a limited hematologic response or unable to tolerate oral iron. Subsequently, treatment with a strict gluten free diet alone was provided. In all, resolution of the anemia resulted without a need for concomitant oral iron supplements. Another patient with marked fatigue and exercise intolerance was treated with intravenous iron, but the iron deficiency anemia only partially improved. After a strict gluten-free diet, her iron deficiency anemia resolved completely. Clinical experience in these celiac patients indicates that the key element in the treatment of iron deficiency anemia is a positive intestinal mucosal response to a gluten-free diet. In celiac patients with iron deficiency anemia, particularly with a limited hematologic response, intolerance or side effects to iron supplements, treatment solely with a gluten-free diet may be a reasonable option. Iron deficiency anemia in celiac disease is heterogeneous and may have multiple causes. Although duodenal mucosal disease is a critical factor, other factors may alter the regulation of iron homeostasis in this setting, including altered erythropoiesis due to the underlying chronic intestinal inflammatory process.

  • Immune Thrombocytopenia in Adult Celiac Disease

    • Authors: Hugh James Freeman
      Pages: 30 - 32
      Abstract: Celiac disease has been associated with a number of immune-mediated hematologic disorders, including idiopathic or immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Review of the literature suggests that children are particularly affected, often with overt skin findings, but in this report, a 39-yr old male with biopsy-defined celiac disease was detected with a persistent immune-mediated reduction in his platelet count despite treatment and follow-up for more than a decade. Although the celiac disease resolved with a strict gluten-free diet, there was no effect on the ITP. Experience suggests that ITP may be rarely appreciated in adults (compared to children) because it may be limited in severity and occurs without clinically obvious purpura or evidence of bleeding, even with diagnostic or therapeutic biopsy procedures. A subsequent retrospective review of over 300 celiac disease patient records from a single teaching hospital clinical practice experience spanning almost 40 years confirmed no additional cases of thrombocytopenia. ITP appears to be rarely associated with celiac disease in adults and, in spite of resolution of the enteropathy, did not appear to respond to a gluten-free diet, even after more than a decade of dietary treatment.
