The Real Risk: How Celiac Disease May Trigger Lymphoma in Some Patients

What the implications of this research?

The researchers from the Netherlands team have pinpointed three additional cytokines (-TNF, IL-2, AND IL-21) as producing the proliferation of malignant cells. These cytokines work in conjunction with the IL-15 type which was already well-known for its properties that also cause malignant cells to increase in number. Therefore, the significance of these findings is the clarification of how exactly the body’s immune system responds to gluten and how this process can facilitate the growth of cancerous cells in patients with RCD II.
