I'll go be the guinea pig for this test. You get to eat all the gluten you want and pop a pill. Sounds like heaven.

I guess there is always the chance I could grow a second head or something.

On a serious note I hope this works!!!

They're still pretty early in this. I'd expect a minimum of another five years of testing, perhaps 10 before it reaches market. They're only testing safety right now, so we won't get any numbers on effectiveness until the next set of testing that's done.

Call me blonde, but I don't get it. What's the drug? How does it "work"? I didn't see anything in the article that explained anything, other than they were starting the testing.

I'm not blonde by the way. :lol:

Oh yeah...it'll take a long time to get approved and everything, if it works. But it's a big step. It will definitely be at least 5 yrs. before we can expect to see anything if we do by then!
