    Through the hard work and concerted efforts of many support groups and individuals throughout the US, along with the generosity of Instituto Di Ricerca in Italy, research funding was accumulated. Early in the Twenty-First Century, under the auspices of the Center for Celiac Disease Research, a new epoch in celiac disease awareness was born. Spearheaded by Dr. Alessio Fasano and several other prominent gastroenterologists, a large multi-center study was undertaken and the rate of celiac disease in the general U.S. population was determined to be at least 1 in 133

    A international team of researchers recently set out to estimate the global burden related to undiagnosed Celiac Disease in the Mediterranean Area, as computed by morbidity, mortality and crude health cost.


    New study reveals high rate of celiac disease in Iran.
    Celiac disease was presumed to be rare in Iran because of low awareness and a low index of suspicion. However new epidemiological data show that celiac disease is a common disorder in Middle Eastern countries, particularly Iran.

    Cephalon has signed an agreement that gives the company the option to purchase a potentially promising new treatment for celiac disease, called larazotide, from Alba Therapeutics.


    New study reveals higher prevalence of celiac disease.
    A team of researchers recently set out to assess rates of celiac disease and the benefits of screening in the general adult population in certain geographically isolated areas.

    A group of researchers in India recently conducted a community-based study on the prevalence of celiac disease in the northern part of India.

    A team of researchers recently set out to establish a universal approach to eliminate disease-triggering properties of alpha-gliadin peptides in celiac disease.


    A new review questions estimates of celiac disease rates.
    A new systematic review by Italian researchers suggests that many studies showing rising or elevated rates of celiac disease are being over-estimated, mainly because tissue transglutaminase antibodies were the only diagnostic tool.

    A $45 million donation to University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research will be used to create a first-of-its-kind institute that will study celiac disease in hopes of gaining deeper understanding of other associated autoimmune disorders, including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.

    New studies from the United States, Europe and other Countries around the world indicate that the commonness of celiac disease has dramatically increased  in the last decade; possibly as much as four-times the amount seen in the 1950's.
    Most current studies show that celiac disease is prevalent in at least 1% of the general population.

    Intestinal biopsy is considered the the gold standard for celiac disease testing. However, biopsy is an  invasive procedure and most people would be happy to avoid biopsy all together. Based solely on serology, a new diagnostic standard  has been proposed that would no longer require intestinal biopsy for celiac disease diagnosis in some patients.

    Celiac disease is a genetic auto-immune disease which, until now,  has primarily been considered a Western epidemic. However, we are seeing a rise of celiac disease  in  Middle Eastern and North African countries.
