Physician-in-Chief and Scientific Director, UPMC Children's Hospital Pittsburgh
Brief Summary of Lecture: Celiac disease is a complex autoimmune disorder caused by dietary exposure to gluten protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. Viral infections have been proposed as a trigger for celiac disease in genetically susceptible persons, but an underlying mechanism was unclear. Dr. Dermody will describe New York from his laboratory indicating that reovirus infection at the time of a newly introduced food can lead to the development of food-specific immune responses. These findings establish a link between a virus and indication of autoimmunity.
