Study Reviews Gluten Modification Efforts in Celiac Disease Therapies

Celiac.com 03/31/2014 - Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that occurs in genetically susceptible individuals who carry the genetic markers HLA DQ2 or DQ8. About one in three people carry these genetic markers, while researchers estimate that the global prevalence of celiac disease is somewhere between one- and two-percent.

Their review in Clinical Gastroenterology & Hepatology discusses gluten-based therapies including wheat alternatives and wheat selection, enzymatic alteration of wheat, oral enzyme supplements, and polymeric binders as exciting new therapies for treatment of celiac disease.

I hope I'll be fine too.
