This study is to see if a high response to the TTG screening test for celiac disease is as accurate as the current method of diagnosing celiac disease which entails a general anesthetic an...
We hypothesize that peripheral venous catheter used for fluid administration can replace venipuncture blood sampling for selected basic analytes and thus reduce pain in infants under 2 yea...
Background/Aim: Celiac disease is a common immune-mediated disorder, and the only currently available treatment is a gluten-free diet. Recent studies have shown several probiotics to carry...
Main aim: To find evidence-based screening strategies for celiac disease in high risk groups and to find new biomarkers or biomarker combinations for celiac disease diagnostics and follow-...
There are no therapeutic products on the market for celiac disease today. Current treatment is limited to gluten free foods and a gluten-free diet. The main purpose of this study is to t...
Venous sampling is the gold standard for localizing abnormal hormone secretion in several endocrine disorders. The most common indication for venous sampling is in the workup of primary aldosteronism,...
Celiac disease has characteristics of an autoimmune disease, such as increased antibody levels to tissue transglutaminase (tTG). However, assays to measure these biomarkers in blood samples do not ide...
Point of care tests (POCTs) might be used to identify patients with undiagnosed celiac disease who require further evaluation. We performed a large multicenter study to determine the performance of a ...
Celiac disease is a small intestinal inflammatory disease with autoimmune features that is triggered and maintained by the ingestion of the storage proteins (gluten) of wheat, barley and rye. The prev...
Celiac disease and wheat allergy (WA) are infrequent diseases in the general population, and a combination of the 2 is particularly rare. Celiac disease occurs in around 1% of the general population a...
Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.
Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.
An encapsulated lymphatic organ through which venous blood filters.
Insufficiency of arterial or venous blood supply to the spleen due to emboli, thrombi, vascular torsion, or pressure that produces a macroscopic area of necrosis. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
The largest branch of the celiac trunk with distribution to the spleen, pancreas, stomach and greater omentum.
