Celiac is “one of the most common lifelong disorders on a worldwide basis,” according to a new article summarizing celiac disease research from across the globe.
Published in the International Review of Immunology, “New Clues in Celiac Disease Epidemiology, Pathogenesis, Clinical Manifestations, and Treatment” includes important findings and updates on topics like rising celiac disease rates, asymptomatic celiac disease, associated diseases, and potential new therapies for celiac disease beyond the gluten-free diet.
The article also includes several graphs, tables and illustrations to highlight key information, such as the “Celiac Iceberg Model,” an illustration that shows the difference between classic, silent and latent celiac disease.
