Infections might influence the pathogenesis and presentation of celiac disease. The article presents a study conducted to investigate the expression of epithelial natural antibiotics and the influence of gluten free diet in infected condition. Twenty three subjects were studied: 10 controls and 13 with newly diagnosed celiac disease, with a median age of 46 years. Distal duodenal biopsies were taken at baseline and after a median of 6 months of starting gluten free diet. The specimens were assessed by histology, and by real time quantitative polymerase chain reaction for the expression of constitutive and inducible natural antibiotics.
