  • Figure 1. Schematic of gluten binding to different HLA-DQ antigen receptors (modified from [7]). Gluten-sensitive T-cells have different HLA-DQ variants of antigen receptors, represented by the different colors in the figure below. The gray substrate is Glia-α9, the primary CD epitope
  • Figure 2. Schematic of levels of factors affecting celiac disease appearance and population prevalence
  • Figure 3. Schematic of environmental factors influencing changes in CD rates over time. Changes in CD rates may be caused by changes in environmental factors, such as breastfeeding duration timing of gluten introduction, and amount of gluten exposure
