Molecular pathogenesis and clinical immmunology of coeliac disease

  • P. J. Ciclitira
Part of the Immunology and Medicine Series book series (IMME, volume 31)


The chapter sets out the definition and history of the description of coeliac disease. It proceeds to describe the epidemiology, pathology, dermatitis herpetiformis, cereal chemistry, toxicity studies, hypothesis for the pathogenesis, genetics, clinical features, physical disorders of bone metabolism, laboratory investigations, diagnosis, disease association, treatment and complications.
