 New treatment shows promise to reverse celiac disease
 
New treatment shows promise to reverse celiac diseaseResults of a new phase 2 clinical trial using technology developed at Northwestern Medicine show it is possible to induce immune tolerance to gluten in individuals with celiac disease. The findings may pave the way for treated celiac patients to eventually tolerate gluten in their diet.

New study sounds a note of caution in using probiotics in ICUIt's become common for patients in the intensive care unit (ICU), both children and adults, to receive probiotics. Often, they are started at home to counteract diarrhea caused by antibiotics. There is also interest in using probiotics proactively in the ICU. A large multicenter clinical trial in Canada is testing whether probiotics would prevent ventilator-associated pneumonia in adult ICU patients.
 
 
 SEPATH: New template to detect oncogenic viruses and bacteria in human DNA
 
SEPATH: New template to detect oncogenic viruses and bacteria in human DNAA new study from the University of East Anglia describes a novel approach to detecting bacteria and viruses that may possibly be causing cancer. Many such associations have already been found, such as HPV (human papilloma virus) infection in cervical cancer, and Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) in stomach cancer.
 
 
 Study reveals novel druggable driver gene in human gastrointestinal stromal tumors
 
Study reveals novel druggable driver gene in human gastrointestinal stromal tumorsSarcomas - cancers that arise from transformed mesenchymal cells (a type of connective tissue) - are quite deadly. Gastrointestinal stromal tumors are the most common human sarcoma and are initiated by activating mutations in the KIT receptor tyrosine kinase.
 
 
 New insights into how immune system and inflammation play a role in PD
 
New insights into how immune system and inflammation play a role in PDRelatively new research findings indicating that the earliest stages of Parkinson's disease (PD) may occur in the gut have been gaining traction in recent years. In a review published in the Journal of Parkinson's Disease, Tomasz Brudek, PhD, evaluates evidence for the association between inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and PD and proposes directions for future research.
