Primary Research Interests
Low-dose gluten challenge in celiac sprue: malabsorptive and antibody responses.
Short-term gluten challenge in asymptomatic adult celiac patients produces carbohydrate and fat malabsorption but does not increase transglutaminase and antigliadin antibody titers.
Effect of pretreatment of food gluten with prolyl endopeptidase on gluten-induced malabsorption in celiac sprue.
Pretreatment of gluten with PEP avoided the development of fat or carbohydrate malabsorption in the majority of those patients who developed fat or carbohydrate malabsorption after a 2-week gluten challenge.
