Message from the Organizing Committee

XII International Celiac Disease Symposium 2006

November 9-11, 2006

Registration Available in Jan. 2006

Hilton New York

1335 Avenue of the Americas

New York, NY

Celiac disease will take center stage in New York City as the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University hosts the XII International Celiac Disease Symposium 2006, which will bring an unprecedented opportunity for each of you to help shape the future of celiac disease by participating in the symposium, November 9-11, 2006 at the Hilton NY Hotel, New York City. We invite you to participate in this unique and important world gathering, confident that together we can profoundly improve the lives of celiac patients around the globe.

The symposium is expected to attract healthcare industry leaders, clinicians, nutritionists, diagnostic and pharmaceutical executives, scientists, policy makers, patients and journalists and will touch on every aspect of adult and pediatric celiac disease – diagnosis, treatment, business development, science and public policy and has emerged as the single most important forum for bringing together the players who will determine the nature of celiac disease and its impact on patients around the globe.

Over the next few months, you'll find sessions, speakers, workshops, registration, sponsorship opportunities, exhibiting information, descriptions of the events and activities, housing and on our lineup of spectacular receptions in New York City online at www.celiacdiseasecenter.org. We believe this is by far the richest program and the most compelling showcase for celiac disease ever hosted.

Most importantly, it's the energy and intelligence of our speakers, exhibitors and attendees that we're counting on to bring this program to life. We look forward to seeing you there!

With best wishes,

2006 Organizing Committee

I heard about it last year and got the notice in the mail a few weeks ago. In my own city--and it starts on a Thursday... and I'm in school for 2 of the 3 days. I'm crushed.

If anyone goes, tell me about it. It's basically the biggest conference that exists... takes place around the world... Ireland last year.

celiac3270, won't your parents let you off from school for that?

It's mainly that my SCHOOL wouldn't let me off from school--I'll undoubtedly have many tests and they wouldn't consider it a legitimate excuse. People are rarely absent and you can only miss school for a school-related issue (i.e. debate team leaving early for an away tournament).

Bummer. When I was in school all it took was a note from the parents and they had to let you go.

I did it to keep the topic at the view new posts part for the rest of the time before the early regiestration dates go out so new people on the site would see this, and i didn't want to start a new topic cause we already had one going.

Bumping this up....so who is going?

I believe that I am going! I think Jillian (jkmunchkin) said she might go, also. Who else? I'd love to meet up with others.

I'm also going to see Dr. Leo Galland in NYC while I'm there....he specializes in integrative medicine and leaky gut/food intolerances. Since I'm having so many food issues, I figured I'd see him and do the Celiac conference while I'm there. But I can't partake in all the gluten free delights at the conference though...booo.

Write back if you are going so we can get together!

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
