Today I ran across interesting article on celiac= A Dr. Frits Koning from the Leiden University Medical Center in The Netherlands has done research on an enzyme called "prolyl endoprotease" (PEP), which possibly could be break-through as a treatment for celiac disease. He thinks this enzyme could work in the stomach by breaking large gluten molecules into harmless fragments that`ll pass through the small intestine without teeny particles food leaking through into our bloodstream that triggers the destructive autoimmune response that happens when we celiac sufferers eat gluten. This would be an enzyme you can take by mouth. A video interview podcast is available on life lines.tv episode #20 to listen to.
