Age of gluten exposure impacts development of coeliac disease

Presented for the first time at the International Coeliac Disease Meeting were results of the Italian-American research project, the Risk of Coeliac Disease and Age of Gluten Introduction (CELIPREV), co-ordinated by Carlo Catassi, a lecturer in paediatrics at the Marche University Polytechnic, Ancona, Italy, and co-medical director at the Centre for Celiac Research in Maryland.

Nine hundred babies with at least one coeliac-diagnosed parent have been involved, and have been divided into two groups – one in which gluten has been introduced into the diet by six months, and one in which gluten introduction is delayed until twelve months. It has been found that babies in the second group have a four-fold reduced risk of developing coeliac disease by the age of four or five.
