By now you may have already heard this news. In Australia, Dr. Bob Anderson is working on developing a celiac disease vaccine, and a phase one trial is being conducted.
Dr. Anderson said,
"The vaccine itself is intended to gradually desensitize the coeliac sufferer, so that gluten is tolerated. Consequently, the villi in the small intestine should revive and absorb nutrients in the normal way. Ideally, that would mean the end of gluten-free diets for people with coeliac disease."

I have mixed feelings about this vaccine, but since trials are only beginning, it’s not something that needs to be sorted out right now. If you have any thoughts on it, leave a comment and let me know.
