This is good news! Not that I would ever take a drug just so I could eat gluten. But if they come out with a drug, doctors will have an incentive ($$$$) to take celiac seriously, learn about it, and test for it!

gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!
