What’s new in coeliac disease?
The latest developments in coeliac disease and the gluten free diet
Tuesday February 12, 2019
The presentation covers:
- The evolving epidemiology of coeliac disease
- Optimal diagnosis and management of coeliac disease and common patient questions - for example:
Should people who are HLA-DQ2/8 positive but without coeliac disease avoid gluten?
Role of the GFD in autoimmune diseases
- Why does the GFD sometimes fail, including issues related to gluten contamination, and how to address this
- Novel approaches to testing dietary adherence and assessing for gluten contamination
- Role of tableside gluten testing kits and devices
- Dietary controversies e.g. gluten contamination elimination diet, 20ppm vs no detectable gluten
- Novel non-dietary treatment approaches e.g. glutenases, coeliac vaccine

Dr Jason Tye-Din, MBBS, PhD, FRACP
Dr Tye-Din is a gastroenterologist with a clinical and research interest in coeliac disease. He heads the Coeliac Research Lab at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, runs a coeliac clinic at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and is an Honorary Research Fellow at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. His PhD employed feeding studies to characterise gluten immunity that underpinned development of a novel immunotherapy for coeliac disease, Nexvax2. His research interests include understanding the immune and genetic basis for coeliac disease and how gluten tolerance is lost, the role of the microbiome, understanding why the gluten-free diet can fail, and developing and testing novel diagnostics and treatments. He is on the editorial board of Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics and consults for an industry partner (ImmusanT Inc.) who are leading the development of Nexvax2.
