Because of recent observations with other nucleoside analogs that biological activity may be associated the L enantiomer rather than, as expected, with t...

Background: Lamina propria (LPLs) and intraepithelial (IELs) lymphocytes are markedly increased in coeliac mucosa, and are thought to play a crucial role in the generation of villous atrophy in coeliac disease (CD). However, the mechanisms by whic...
