Proliferative response of lymphocytes of normal individuals to wheat proteins (gliadins).
Int Arch Allergy Appl Immunol. 1980;62(2):162-7. PMID: 7372365
Preparations of gliadin, extracted from wheat gluten, were shown to stimulate a proliferative response by lymphocytes of normal donors. Not all donors responded to gliadin. In all but one case responder or non-responder status remained consistent on retesting. There was no association of ability to respond with HLA A or B type.
