So, just picked up the mail and there's a letter from Univ of MD saying that Dr. Fasano won't be seeing patients after December 31, 2012. The letter says he'll continue in a 'collaborative relationship' with Clinical and Research activities at the University but the letter refers adult patients (over 25) to the Adult Gastroenterology department...hmmmmm...guess it is good I got to see him when I did!

For so many reasons it is good you saw him in a clinical setting before he moves on !! (he is pretty hunky. :) )

Well, perhaps his research has him very busy (which is all good for us) I see he has stepped up research on zonulin and how it makes celiacs have "leaky" guts.

He is looking at preventative meds for us. He he has always been an outstanding celiac advocate.

I think this man has our best interests at heart.

OMG, I think I have a crush on him. :)

Stepping up zonulin research is outstanding....the other trials are moving along at snails pace - actually I think snails are quicker.

I had a crush on him from reading his research - years before I saw his picture ;)

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

Me too! and then, I saw a pic of him and it was confirmed...and when Babs met with him, my first question was...so, is he as handsome as I think??

Maybe we aren't the only ones and now he has to hide is his lab from all of us?

Not sure if this has already been mentioned elsewhere (I've not been able to keep up with all the forums) but Fasano moved the entire Center for Celiac Research to MassGeneral Hospital for Children in Boston! He's seeing patients there apparently.

 

The letter I received didn't say ANYTHING about this. University of Maryland must have been peevish about his departure!
