Coeliac disease is a persistent autoimmune disorder that affects the small intestine. It is triggered by an abnormal immune response to the consumption of gluten-containing foods like cereals. When individuals who are susceptible to the disease consume gluten, enteropathy occurs which leads to the inflammation of the villi in the intestinal mucosa and results in indigestion and malabsorption of nutrients. It is one of the most widespread genetic conditions in Europe. While there is no cure for coeliac disease, strict adherence to a gluten-free diet or total avoidance of gluten can help heal damage to the mucosal lining. Accelerating global research, Central BioHub offers high-quality human serum, plasma, and whole blood samples from patients with coeliac diseases that are ideal for scientific research.
