The following is a sponsored post written by CeliAction. They are continuing to seek volunteers for their study and have found a number of participants through this blog. I think it’s important to note that the drug is actually a mixture of two different enzymes. If you have celiac disease, I believe the study is worth your consideration. Be sure to check out the website for more information. Questions in the comments will be responded to by a CeliAction representative.
Even when you try your best to stay gluten-free, you never know for sure if something you’ve eaten has been cross-contaminated or mislabeled until after the fact. Most people with celiac disease can relate to accidentally ingesting gluten and then paying the price later on.
Well, there is research currently underway to evaluate if an investigational drug can reduce the symptoms of unintentional exposure to gluten. If proven effective, the drug would offer a new way to manage celiac disease and supplement a gluten-free diet by reducing the risk of gluten’s impact on the body. The best part is that you have to stay on your gluten-free diet in order to participate – no gluten challenge!
The clinical research study is called the CeliAction Study and you may qualify if you:
- Have been diagnosed with celiac disease by a healthcare professional
- Are attempting to be on a gluten-free diet
- Have experienced at least one moderate or severe symptom of celiac disease in the past month
If you participate in the CeliAction Study, you:
- Will be able to maintain your current diet restrictions
- Will be provided with study-related care at no cost
- Do not need medical insurance to take part
- May be compensated for time and travel
- Will help advance medical research for celiac disease
