Food Res Int 2021 Jul 7;145:110386. Epub 2021 May 7.

Institute of Food Sciences, CNR, Avellino, Italy; E.L.F.I.D, University "Federico II" Napoli, Italy. Electronic address:

Scope: Several studies reported a role of amylase/trypsin-inhibitors (ATIs) of common wheat species in promoting immune reactions. Here, we investigated in celiac disease (CD), the immunogenic properties of ATIs from diploid compared to common hexaploid wheats after an in vitro proteolytic hydrolysis.

Methods And Results: ATIs purified from two lines of diploid Triticum monococcum (TM), Monlis and Norberto-ID331, and from Triticum aestivum (TA), Sagittario, were digested with pepsin-chymotrypsin (PC) enzymes and analyzed using a proteomic approach, and subsequently their immune stimulatory properties were investigated on jejunal biopsies and T-cell lines from CD patients.

Thermal and Acidic Treatments of Gluten Epitopes Affect Their Recognition by HLA-DQ2 .

Front Nutr 2021 19;8:647750. Epub 2021 May 19.

Beijing Key Laboratory of Functional Food From Plant Resources, College of Food Science and Nutritional Engineering, China Agricultural University, Beijing, China.

Celiac disease (CD) is a prevalent disorder with autoimmune features. Dietary exposure of wheat gluten (including gliadins and glutenins) to the small intestine activates the gluten-reactive CD4 T cells and controls the disease development. While the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) is the single most important genetic factor of this polygenic disorder, HLA-DQ2 recognition of gluten is the major biological step among patients with CD.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2021 May 24;57(6). Epub 2021 May 24.

Clinical and Research Laboratory (LACIUS, URS), Department of Chemical, Biological, and Agricultural Sciences (DC-QB), Division of Sciences and Engineering, University of Sonora, Navojoa 85880, Mexico.

Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) is a clinical entity characterized by the absence of celiac disease and wheat allergy in patients that trigger reproducible symptomatic responses to gluten-containing foods consumption. Due to the lack of sensitive and reproducible biomarkers for NCGS diagnosis, placebo-controlled gluten challenges must be carried out for its diagnosis. The gluten challenges can be either double- or single-blind, for research or clinical practice purposes, respectively. Read More

Nutrients 2021 May 17;13(5). Epub 2021 May 17.

R&D Department, Laboratori Baldacci SpA, 56121 Pisa, Italy.

The iron absorption process developsmainly in the proximal duodenum. This portion of the intestine is typically destroyed in celiac disease (CD), resulting in a reduction in absorption of iron and subsequent iron deficiency anemia (IDA). In fact, the most frequent extra-intestinal manifestation (EIM) of CD is IDA, with a prevalence between 12 and 82% (in relation with the various reports) in patients with new CD diagnosis. Read More
