  1. 1. Gliadin-Blocking Peptides In vitro assessment of their potential to alleviate celiac disease development

    Author : Karolina Hoffmann; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; high-gliadin affinity blocking peptides; Caco-2 cells; in vitro digestion; tissue transglutaminase; celiac disease; gliadin; α-amylase trypsin inhibitors;

    Abstract : This thesis work aimed to investigate the potential of synthetic peptides as agents to block wheat prolamins (gliadins) that trigger the development of symptoms in celiac disease. The first step of this investigation included selection and synthesis of peptides with high affinity to gliadins and assessment of the potential of these so-called blocking peptides to limit gliadin reactivity in vitro.

  2. 2. Serologic Markers in Screening for Coeliac Disease, Clinical significance and immunogenetic basis

    University dissertation from Department of Medicine, Lund University

    Abstract : The prevalence of coeliac disease (CD) was initially estimated to 1/1537. Based on serial analysis [GA and endomysial antibodies (EMA)], the prevalence was 6/1970 (0.30%). In autoimmune chronic hepatitis 5. READ MORE

  3. 3. Crohn's disease : Studies on epidemiology, twins, aetiological factors and clinical course with special reference to smoking

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Eva Lindberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1992]

    Abstract : In an epidemiological study of the incidence of Crohn's disease in Orebro county during the 25-year period 1963-1987, the mean annual incidence was 6.1/105 inhabitants. During the first five year period the mean incidence was 4.3 but during the following four quinquennia the incidence was stable at around 6. READ MORE

  4. 4. Coeliac disease : Clinical and immunological aspects

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tony Hansson; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Coeliac disease; cytokines; TGF-beta; tissue transglutaminase; IL-4; IFN-gamma; TNF-alpha; ELISPOT; anti-endomysiumantibodies; anti-gliadin antibodies; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology;

    Abstract : A better immunological definition of coeliac disease and highly discriminatory serum markers are needed to identify children with early mucosal lesions and for rapid follow-up and a better knowledge of antigen reactivity and cytokine production will be needed to clarify the pathogenic mechanisms.The numbers of circulating IgAanti-gliadin antibody-producing (IgAAGA SFC) cells were increased in patients with untreated coeliac disease compared to controls and treated coeliac disease patients.

  5. 5. Coeliac Disease: aspects in different child populations

    University dissertation from Department of Pediatrics, Lund University

    Author : Annelie Carlsson; [2001]

    Abstract : The true prevalence of coeliac disease includes patients with symptomatic/diagnosed disease, and silent or undiagnosed disease. The incidence of diagnosed coeliac disease increased steeply in Swedish children born after 1982, when a change in infant feeding recommendations was made. READ MORE
