Gluten Intolerance in Patients With Diarrhea Predominant Irritable Bowel Syndrome

2014-07-23 21:09:43 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The specific hypotheses are:

Gluten supplementation for four weeks increases small intestinal permeability and accelerates colonic transit in patients with irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea (IBS-D) or functional diarrhea (FD) who are HLA-DQ2 positive.

Description

The study design is a double-blind, randomized, controlled, parallel-group, 6-week study comparing the effects of gluten rich versus gluten free diets in diarrhea or diarrhea predominant IBS patients. All participants will keep a daily bowel pattern diary throughout the study. All participants will have negative serum tissue transglutaminase (TTg) assay, and anti-endomysial antibody test, if TTg is positive or equivocal. All participants will have the following studies performed both before and after the 4-week dietary intervention:

1. Stool samples to check markers of inflammation such as fecal calprotectin.

2. Blood samples to check markers of inflammation and for genetic testing.

3. After ingestion of the mannitol, lactulose and sucralose sugars, urine samples to indirectly measure small intestinal and colonic permeability.

4. After sedation, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and flexible sigmoidoscopy to obtain 6 mucosal biopsies from the small bowel and sigmoid colon for immunohistochemical analysis.

5. Scintigraphy to measure gastrointestinal transit.
