Coeliac Disease – Management, Monitoring and Diagnosis using Biosensors and an Integrated Chip System (CD-MEDICS)

The European Commission, under the auspices of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), within the 7th Framework Research Programme, has designated 9.5M€ towards research and innovation for the diagnosis, monitoring and management of Coeliac Disease (CD). The Integrated “Co-operation” Project, ‘Coeliac Disease – Management, Monitoring and Diagnosis using Biosensors and an Integrated Chip System (CD-MEDICS)’, is a highly ambitious project, co-ordinated by Ciara O’ Sullivan of the Universitat Rovira I Virgili in Spain. Thjs integrated project brings together through its 21 partners, including some of Europe’s finest researchers and institutes to execute a four-year project that can be expected to have significant beneficial impact. Universities, hospitals and technology centres of 10 European countries (Spain, Germany, United Kingdom, Greece, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Slovenia, Ireland and Belgium) will put together their large scientific experience with the aim of exploiting breakthroughs at the confluences of bio-, micro- and nano- technologies to create a low-cost non-invasive intelligent technology platform for point-of-care diagnostics, capable of simultaneous genomic and proteomic detection, with embedded communication abilities for direct interfacing with hospital information systems.

MyCeliacID helps make finding answers easier

Do you have the genes for celiac disease?

Find out if you have the genes associated with celiac disease. It's easy with MyCeliacID? — the first do-it-yourself saliva-based genetic test dedicated to celiac disease. If you do have the genes, MyCeliacID? will tell you your risk of developing celiac in your lifetime. If you don't have the genes, it is highly unlikely that you will develop celiac disease in your lifetime. Only a doctor or other qualified healthcare professional can diagnose celiac disease. Your doctor will likely ask about your family history, your symptoms, and may perform additional testing to confirm the diagnosis.


There are 4 easy steps in the MyCeliacID process.

You will be notified by e-mail once your test results are available, usually within 7 days of receiving your sample. You may then access your report via a secure link utilizing your username and password. Your test results are 100% confidential. surprisedsurprisedsurprisedcool

Diagnosing Celiac Disease

Are there other ways to test for celiac disease?

Yes. We developed MyCeliacID? as the first and only do it yourself test that examines saliva for the genes that predispose a person to celiac disease, but there are other tests for celiac disease.

Autism spectrum disorder

Gluten-free and casein-free diets are one such treatment.

Treatment with gluten-free and casein-free diets centre on the opioid-excess theory of autism; the principle that autism is the result of a metabolic disorder. Opioids are chemicals that are found in the central nervous system and gastrointestinal tract. They can have beneficial and side effects. They can result in feelings of euphoria and also have pain relieving effects.

Foods that contain gluten and casein are high in peptides with opioid activity. These peptides can pass through the intestinal membrane which is thought to be abnormally permeable (1) and enter the central nervous system. This has an effect on neurotransmission and can produce other physiological symptoms associated with autism. Abnormal levels of urinary peptides have also been reported in people with autism (2). This had lead to the theory that removing casein and gluten from the diet should reduce symptoms associated with autism.

Today celiac disease 4 times more common than in 1950s

New study finds celiac disease 4 times more common than in 1950s
July 1, 2009

Celiac disease, an immune system reaction to gluten in the diet, is over four times more common today than it was 50 years ago, according to findings of a Mayo Clinic study published this month in the journal Gastroenterology.

The study also found that subjects who did not know they had celiac disease were nearly four times more likely than celiac-free subjects to have died during the 45 years of follow-up.

"Celiac disease has become much more common in the last 50 years, and we don't know why," says Joseph Murray, M.D., the Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist who led the study. "It now affects about one in a hundred people. We also have shown that undiagnosed or 'silent' celiac disease may have a significant impact on survival. The increasing prevalence, combined with the mortality impact, suggests celiac disease could be a significant public health issue."

Scientists uncover further steps leading to celiac disease

March 2, 2008

Scientists who last year identified a new genetic risk factor for coeliac disease, have, following continued research, discovered an additional seven gene regions implicated in causing the condition.

The team, lead by David van Heel, Professor of Gastrointestinal Genetics at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, have further demonstrated that of the nine coeliac gene regions now know, four of these are also predisposing factors for type 1 diabetes. Their research sheds light not only on the nature of coeliac disease, but on the common origins of both diseases. It is published online today (2 March 2008) in Nature Genetics.

Pinpointing immune system disturbances in celiac disease

February 28, 2010

New research has identified four aspects of immune system disturbance which lead to the development of coeliac disease. Nearly 40 different inherited risk factors which predispose to the disease have now been identified. These latest findings could speed the way towards improved diagnostics and treatments for the autoimmune complaint that affects 1 in 100 of the population, and lead to insights into related conditions such as type 1 diabetes.

Professor van Heel, commenting on the latest findings said: "We can now shed light on some of the precise immune disturbances leading to coeliac disease. These include how T cells in the body react to toxic wheat proteins, how the thymus gland eliminates these T cells during infancy, and the body's response to viral infections. We now understand that many of these genetic risk factors work by altering the amounts of these immune system genes that cells make. The data also suggests that coeliac disease is made up of hundreds of genetic risk factors, we can have a good guess at nearly half of the genetic risk at present."

Type 1 diabetes and celiac disease linked

December 10, 2008

Type 1 (juvenile) diabetes and celiac disease appear to share a common genetic origin, scientists at the University of Cambridge and Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, have confirmed.

Their findings, which are reported in this week's edition of the New England Journal of Medicine, identified seven chromosome regions which are shared between the two diseases. The research suggests that type 1 diabetes and celiac disease may be caused by common underlying mechanisms such as autoimmunity-related tissue damage and intolerance to dietary antigens (foreign substances which prompt an immune response).

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder which causes the body to attack the beta cells of the pancreas, limiting its ability to produce the insulin necessary to regulate blood sugar levels. Celiac disease, also an autoimmune disorder, attacks the small intestine and is triggered by the consumption of gluten (a protein found in wheat, barley and rye) and cereals. The development and anatomy of the small intestine and pancreas are closely related, and the gut immune system shares connections with pancreatic lymph nodes, which have been linked to an inflammation of the pancreas and the destruction of beta cells.

University of Maryland School of Medicine Researchers Identify Key Pathogenic Differences
Between Celiac Disease & Gluten Sensitivity

Thursday, March 10, 2011

Study from University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research Places Gluten Sensitivity on Center Stage of Spectrum of Gluten-Related Disorders

Scientists at the University of Maryland School of Medicine’s Center for Celiac Research have proven that gluten sensitivity is different from celiac disease at the molecular level and in the response it elicits from the immune system. The research, published online in BMC Medicine, provides the first scientific evidence of a different mechanism leading to gluten sensitivity. It also demonstrates that gluten sensitivity and celiac disease are part of a spectrum of gluten-related disorders.

Gluten Sensitivity vs. Celiac Disease
What's the Difference Between the Two Conditions?

By Jane Anderson, Guide
Updated February 24, 2012

Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity involve two different responses to the gluten protein, which is found in the grains wheat, barley and rye. However, the symptoms of both conditions are just about identical, which makes it impossible to determine which one you might have (if either one) without the use of medical tests.

Celiac Disease Involves Autoimmune Reaction To Gluten

Celiac disease occurs when gluten spurs your immune system to attack the lining of your small intestine. The resulting intestinal damage, called villous atrophy, can cause malnutrition and conditions such as osteoporosis. It also potentially can lead to cancer in rare cases.

The condition is autoimmune in nature, which means gluten doesn't cause the damage directly; instead, your immune system's reaction to the gluten protein spurs your white blood cells to mistakenly attack your small intestinal lining. Celiac disease is also associated with other autoimmune conditions, including autoimmune thyroid disease and type 1 diabetes.

Celiac disease affects about 1 in 133 people, or close to 1% of the population. However, few people — some estimates are as few as 5% of the total — know they have the condition.

Gluten Sensitivity Stems From Different Immune System Reaction

Gluten sensitivity, also known as non-celiac gluten sensitivity or sometimes gluten intolerance, has only been recently recognized as a stand-alone condition by the medical community, and there's still plenty of controversy surrounding it. Not all physicians agree it exists, and little research has been done on its causes, symptoms, and effects.
