The bread wheat genome is very complex because it originates from 3 different strains. It has 21 chromosomes which is 3 times as many as humans. Because of this it has been challenging to pinpoint in detail where genes that code different proteins are. Through a massive, international collaborative effort, the entire genome of bread wheat has now been mapped. This makes it possible to in the future develop wheat strains that lack certain proteins, including the gluten proteins that are harmful for celiac disease patients.
PhD student Ida Lindeman has performed part of her PhD work in Cambridge, Sarah Teichmann's laboratory, as part of a researcher exchange program to develop world leading research at UiO. Her work has now been published in Nature Methods.
Since January 2018, Det Glutenfrie Verksted by Monica Hellmann, Nordic Refreshment Company AS, has donated 1 NOK per bag of gluten free baking mix to research on coeliac disease. The donation is supporting research under the management by Prof Ludvig M. Sollid and Knut E.A. Lundin who are very grateful for this generous gift.
Professor Cisca Wijmenga is awarded the distinguished UEG Research Prize 2018 for her outstanding work “A celiac mucosal barrier-on-chip model to investigate its role in initiation of celiac disease”.
Researchers from J CoDiRC won prizes for best original publications from Oslo University Hospital published in the second half of 2017
The patients weren't crazy—Knut Lundin was sure of that. But their ailment was a mystery. They were convinced gluten was making them sick. Yet they didn't have celiac disease, an autoimmune reaction to that often-villainized tangle of proteins in wheat, barley, and rye. And they tested negative for a wheat allergy. They occupied a medical no man's land. (Servick, Science News, 2018)
Gastroenterologist and J CoDiRC group leader Knut Lundin is the keynote speaker at the National Coeliac Conference 2018, UK. The conference is arranged in Malta by Coeliac UK and Narrative Structures to increase awareness of coeliac disease.
Each year the Norwegian Society of Immunology organizes the public event: "Immunologiens dag". This year the topic was autoimmune disease, and Ludvig Sollid and Knut Lundin were invited to speak about their research on coeliac disease
Diagnostikk av cøliaki – er tiden inne for å endre metode?
PhD student and dietary clinician Gry Skodje and Postdoc Lene Støkken Høydahl will both be giving talks at Glutenfri matmesse 2018, a public arrangement by Norsk Cøliakiforening i Oslo og Akershus April 14th.
All J CoDiRC members, associated members, Scientific Advisory Board and Patient Advisory Council enjoyed a two-day seminar at Kleivstua February 13-14 to present and discuss current research on coeliac disease in the Centre.
In a press release today Monica Hellmann, who is the founder of Det Glutenfrie Verksted, Nordic Refreshment Company AS, announces that she wants to donate money for the research of Professors Ludvig M. Sollid and Knut E.A. Lundin on coeliac disease.
Our member Gry Skodje (clinical dietician) from the research group of professor Knut Lundin, and with collaborators from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, has published a study showing that fructans, rather than gluten, might be the villain of non-coeliac gluten sensitivity. This was covered in the national broadcast channel NRK news November 17th.
Professor Knut E.A. Lundin, group leader at J CoDiRC, is elected president for the European Society for Study of Coeliac Disease (ESSCD)
Assoc. Professor Shuo-Wang Qiao was challenged to explain what happens when the immune system fails in 30 seconds
The Young Talent Group and the National Societies Committee of UEG (United European Gastroenterology) has chosen J CoDiRC as one of the host centres for the Visiting Fellowship Programme for researchers 2018/2019.
Vikas Sarna and colleagues recently published a paper showing that a blood test can be more sensitive than biopsy to detect coeliac patients after 14-day gluten challenge.
Coeliac patients from the Oslo area are invited to participate in a study of how the immune defense reacts to a gluten challenge. The goal of the study is to investigate how the immune system reacts to a gluten challenge, measured by the time points different immune cells appear in the blood.
Professors Knut Lundin and Ludvig Sollid answered questions in a Facebook live chat arranged by Coeliac UK, Friday June 9'th.
In connection with the recent findings published in Science that certain viral infections can trigger coeliac disease, Professor Knut Lundin was interviewed by EKKO, NRK radio, April 20.
