  • Sjögren’s Syndrome Associated with Celiac Disease

    • Authors: Felipe Freire Silva; Aaron Lerner, João Carlos Geber Júnior, Jozélio Freire de Carvalho, Yehuda Shoenfeld
      Pages: 76 - 82
      Abstract: Background: Autoimmune diseases tend to run in families and the affected persons are prone to additional autoimmune conditions. This is the case for celiac disease (CD) and Sjögren's syndrome (SS). Objectives: To describe a patient with both diseases and to analyze the clinical, therapeutic and evolutionary characteristics of published patients with SS associated with CD. Methodology: A systematic review of articles published in PubMed, MEDLINE, LILACS and Scielo dating from 1966 to May 2020, was conducted, using the following search words: Sjögren's syndrome, Celiac disease. Only English, German and French publications were considered. Results: Only 16 studies with 31 patients with SS associated CD were depicted. Adding the present case would mount the total to 17 studies, describing 32 patients. There are 6 observational studies and 10 case reports. In relation to demographics, age varied from 10 to 73 years old, with a median of 45 years and the great majority were female (21/32 patients). SS preceded CD manifestations in 7 studies, CD was the first presentation in 6 articles and simultaneous diseases was observed in 4 reports. Time elapsed between the two diseases varied from 2 to 33 years. Autoantibodies related to SS showed that anti-Ro and anti-La were positive in 8/17, while CD-related antibodies were positive in 12/17 studies. Regarding therapy, the majority received a gluten-free diet as CD therapy (13/17 studies). Glucocorticoid was prescribed in 6/17 studies and hydroxychloroquine in 4/17. When described, all studies demonstrated improvement of CD manifestations and 7/17 improved SS symptoms. Conclusion: The present comprehensive review evaluated all published cases of SS and CD of the literature. In the majority, SS precedes CD and all patients had good responses to appropriate therapy. It is hoped that increased awareness of the combination of SS and CD will result in earlier diagnosis and therapy and improved outcome.

  • Celiac Disease Presenting as Celiac Artery Stenosis and Intra Abdominal
           Venous Thrombosis - An Unheard Entity

    • Authors: Shravan Bohra; Apurva Shah
      Pages: 83 - 84
      Abstract: Extra intestinal manifestations of celiac disease are seen in about 20% of patients including venous thrombosis but arterial stenosis is not described in the literature. We describe a first-ever case of celiac disease in 26-year-old lady presenting as severe celiac artery stenosis, managed successfully with arterial stenting. She also had portal and superior mesenteric vein thrombosis. Excellent improvement was seen during follow up after treatment with a gluten-free diet, oral anticoagulation, antiplatelet and celiac arterial stenting. Hypercoagulability and thromboembolic manifestation in celiac disease should be kept in mind especially during active disease or acute exacerbation of celiac disease.

  • Modeling Symptom Severity and Estimated Gluten Ingestion in Celiac Disease
           Patients on a Gluten-Free Diet

    • Authors: Jack A. Syage; Philip T. Lavin
      Pages: 85 - 89
      Abstract: Introduction: It is common for celiac disease (CD) patients on a gluten-free diet to accidentally consume gluten that can cause symptomatic distress and histologic damage. We present an algorithm to relate the quantity of gluten intake to the severity of episodic symptoms for abdominal pain, bloating and tiredness in CD patients. Methods: This analysis employs a model based on data from the CeliAction study for latiglutenase (ALV003-1221; NCT01917630). A previously estimated average daily quantity of gluten consumed by these trial patients along with the data for frequency and severity of the symptoms for abdominal pain, bloating, and tiredness allowed us to estimate the relationship between episodic inadvertent gluten ingestion and symptom severity. Results: The CD trial patients were previously estimated to consume a mean of 354 mg/day. From the study data, these patients experienced at least one symptom (of six possible) almost every day (6.13/week) and on average experienced 2-3 different symptoms per symptom event. The most common severity (on a 1-5 scale) was 2 for abdominal pain and 3 for bloating and tiredness corresponding to 1.1, 0.9, and 0.7 g gluten consumed per event. The frequency that a severe symptom (4 or 5) occurs during a symptomatic event equates to about 10%, 27%, and 33% for abdominal pain, bloating, and tiredness and correlates to 2.1, 1.2, and 1.0 g gluten consumed per event, respectively. Conclusions: This model suggests that the quantity of ingested gluten varies per event type and likely includes periodic gluten exposures of substantial quantity.

  • Difficulties Assessing Adherence to Gluten-free Diet in Celiac Patients

    • Authors: María Catalina Vespa; Amaya Oyarzún Arancibia, Jimena Ayala Cid, Magdalena Araya Quezada
      Pages: 90 - 94
      Abstract: To date the only efficient treatment of celiac disease is a lifelong gluten-free diet (GFD), which involves relevant lifestyle changes. Numerous methods measure adherence to GFD, but none is completely reliable. The aim of the study was to compare three frequently used methods to measure adherence to GFD and study factors that influence adherence to GFD. Eighty-one celiac patients 15 years or older, on GFD were evaluated by dietitian interview, a Celiac Dietary Adherence Test (CDAT) and blood antitransglutaminase antibodies (tTG). Factors influencing adherence were assessed by an ad-hoc questionnaire following WHO criteria. Adherent and non-adherent patients were classified in the same category in 44.4% of cases (n=36), (non-adherent=35.8% and adherent= 8.6%). In general, methods identified better non-adherent than adherent individuals. Among the 5 realms defined by WHO, when tTG (positive/negative) defined adherence, logistic regression identified ten significant variables (information about disease, income, education, cost of gluten-free products, eating in restaurants, time on GFD, symptoms at diagnosis, number of symptoms at time of diagnosis, other chronic diseases present, allergy/food intolerance plus a chronic disease and CD). Using the interview as reference, two variables were significant (self-perception of knowledge of the GFD, and presence of gastrointestinal symptoms when gluten is consumed). Results illustrate the difficulties of measuring both adherence to GFD and the factors that influences it. Further studies should explore new markers able to measure the amount of gluten necessary to activate autoantibodies production and the time they take to stop their production once the patient stops gluten ingestion.

  • Gluten-free Products in the UK Retail Environment. Availability, Pricing,
           Consumer Opinions in a Longitudinal Study

    • Authors: Frank Vriesekoop; Emily Wright, Stephanie Swinyard, Wim de Koning
      Pages: 95 - 103
      Abstract: Gluten free products are essential for people who suffer from coeliac disease or have a more generic gluten intolerance. In both instances people are forced to resort to consuming gluten free (GF) foods. We carried out two online surveys to gauge the sentiments from people purchasing GF produce, and we carried out two retail observation studies. These studies were carried out in 2015 and repeated again 2019. Bread was the most commonly purchased GF product, but also the most complained about GF product, both from a quality and a price point of view. These sentiments did not change much from 2015 to 2019. One clear set of trends was that people purchased less specialty flour and raising agent when comparing 2019 to 2015, and they did less home-baking over the same period. Furthermore, the decrease in home-baking coincided with a relative increase in satisfaction in the quality of GF products. With regards to observations made across 11 supermarkets, we observed an overall increase in the number of GF line items, with the budget supermarkets offering a very small selection of produce labelled as GF in 2019 only. Our research shows that the relative cost of GF items increased from 2015 to 2019, with the average price ratio of GF food to non-GF foods rising from 3.2 to 4.1 across all UK supermarkets. Ultimately, GF produce cost significantly more compared to similar, gluten-containing foods, while many of the GF products, especially GF breads, still underperform when it comes to the perceived quality and value for money.

  • Celiac Disease: Practical Knowledge of Young Doctors at Setif University
           Hospital, Algeria

    • Authors: Hakim Rahmoune; Mounira Amrane, Nada Boutrid
      Pages: 104 - 106
      Abstract: The concept of celiac disease (CD) has greatly evolved during the last decades; ranging from the classical digestive form to the peculiar monosymptomatic and silent forms. Thus, in order to assess the knowledge of interns and residents in pediatrics about CD, a local survey was conducted through a 14-item questionnaire. This work provided a local glimpse of young doctors' awareness about CD. The level of knowledge was globally correct, but vigorous efforts are needed; notably regarding the use of celiac serology and the introduction of the gluten-free diet.

  • Orchestrating the Tumor Microenvironment in Colorectal Cancer

    • Authors: Daniel Sur; Alexandru Irimie
      Pages: 107 - 109
      Abstract: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common cancers worldwide. Despite the improvement of treatment options that bettered advanced-stage patient’s overall survival, the clinical outcome is still poor. The tumor microenvironment is thought to be an essential participant in the metastasis process. Liver metastases are the most frequent metastases that occur in CRC patients. It is believed that colorectal cancer has the liver as a preferential site for metastasis, and this is possible due to the multiple interactions that happen in the tumor microenvironment and due to the tumor stem cells input. As a means to investigate this biological process, microRNAs (miRNAs) have established a name for themselves as putative biomarkers in cancer and especially colorectal cancer. In this pilot study, we explored miRNAs expression that by influencing the tumor stem cells can help prevail liver metastasis in advanced-stage CRC patients.

  • A Systematic Review on Use of Liver Function Tests to Assess Association
           between Liver Injury and COVID 19 Disease

    • Authors: Richard Chinaza IKEAGWULONU; Nkereuwem Sunday ETUKUDOH, Mark Uchejeso OBETA, Henry Chukwuemeka URO-CHUKWU, ImohEtim IBANGA
      Pages: 110 - 116
      Abstract: BACKGROUND: As at 27th of June 2020, the COVID 19 pandemic had affected 9,653,048 people across the world including 491,128 deaths. We reviewed different studies on liver function tests in COVID 19 patients to better understand how the liver injury is associated with COVID 19 disease. METHODS: A review of the literature was carried out between18th May and 10thJune 2020 on the studies that investigated liver function tests in COVID 19 patients as a marker of liver injury in the patients. The databases used were Pubmed/Medline, Google Scholar and JSTOR and the search protocol involves a combination of words like laboratory diagnosis, liver function tests and COVID 19, SARS-COV-2 and coronavirus. RESULT: Twelve relevant articles were identified out of a total of 212 articles that were initially identified after duplicates were removed. The twelve articles reviewed comprise of 1,926 COVID 19 infected patients representing 1,003(52.1%) males and 923(47.9%) females. Comparing mild to severe cases of COVID 19, the most prevalent laboratory findings were increased AST (100%), ALT (91.7%) and total bilirubin (71.4%), as well as 100%, decreased serum level of albumin. CONCLUSION: Liver injury is associated with COVID 19 as evident with observed changes in serum levels of liver enzymes, bilirubin and albumin in these individuals.
