Celiac disease is a widespread condition that affects 1 to 3% of the population. In recent years there has been an increase in the incidence of this disease.

Dr. Raanan Shamir discusses the role that the intestinal microbiota plays in the development of celiac disease. The administration of probiotics and the state of the microbiota may increase the risk of the onset of this disease but at the same time, by modulating the immune system, could help in the treatment.
