At the meeting, experts discussed the challenges of identifying an appropriate target population for pharmacologic therapy, defining and measuring efficacy in clinical trials for celiac disease, and the timing of assessment end points.

GREAT 3 was held March 30 to 31, 2015, and was cosponsored by the American College of Gastroenterology; American Gastroenterological Association; Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America; North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition; Pediatric IBD Foundation; and North American Society for the Study of Celiac Disease.
