From this article’s abstract: “Ten of these 20 patients showed a similarly strong inflammatory reaction to cow’s milk (CM) challenge. Six of the CM sensitive patients were challenged with specific CM proteins: casein and alpha-lactalbumin. Casein, in contrast to alpha-lactalbumin, induced an inflammatory response similar to that produced by cow’s milk. A mucosal inflammatory response similar to that elicited by gluten was produced by CM protein in about 50% of the patients with coeliac disease. Casein, in particular, seems to be involved in this reaction…In conclusion, our data raise the possibility that sensitivity to cow’s milk may be a feature in a proportion of patients with CD and may therefore contribute to persistent symptoms in coeliac patients who are on a gluten-free diet.

Article’s conclusion: Monoclonal antibody made against alpha-gliadin 206-217 reacted moderately with casein and many other antigens.
