ABSTRACT
The author comments on the study which identifies shared mechanisms in the genesis of coeliac disease or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). He believes that these observations are necessary with regards to the recent belief that IBD is a represented dysregulation of the adaptive immune system and the belief that it has something to do with both the function of the epithelial barrier and innate immunity.
