Research Conference 2013 - Understanding coeliac disease: factors affecting diagnosis, follow up and management

Our Research Conference ‘Understanding coeliac disease: factors affecting diagnosis, follow up and management’ held in March 2013, was attended by over 100 healthcare professionals and academics.

The event was chaired by Professor David Sanders, Professor of Gastroenterology and a Consultant Gastroenterologist at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital and the University of Sheffield. Professor Sanders is also Chair of the Coeliac UK Health Advisory Council.

You can find the presentation topics and speakers' talks below:

Non responsive coeliac disease

This review provides a practical guide to the investigation of patients who do not respond to a gluten-free diet. It highlights the differences between the more common nonresponsive coeliac disease and the much rarer form, refractory coeliac disease.

Presence and dosing of HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8 genotypes do not predict clinical or pathological severity of coeliac disease

HLA-DQ2 or –DQ8 is known to be a necessary but not sufficiently causal factor for coeliac disease. This presentation looks at whether there may be a gene-dose effect upon clinical and pathological manifestations of coeliac disease.

Thank you to Juvela, Glutafin, Warburtons and Thermo Fisher who sponsored the 2013 conference.
