URGENT: Volunteers Who Have Celiac Sprue: Research Subjects Needed

Celiac.com 03/19/2002 - For the past several years, Gary M. Gray, M.D. and Chaitan Khosla, Ph.D., both at Stanford University, have been studying the underlying causes of Celiac Disease, with an eye toward finding a therapeutic solution that would not require the strict adherence to a gluten-free diet. For the past two years, I have helped organize the Celiac conference at Stanford University; and we have collected blood from Celiac volunteers for their research. Based on a series of studies involving animal tissue, Drs. Gray, Khosla, and coworkers have developed a hypothesis for the cause of the disease. Their findings in animal studies need to be confirmed on human tissue, and any differences in normal and Celiac intestine must be defined. The Stanford researchers are now in need of volunteers who are scheduled for a follow-up biopsy as part of their optimal care to provide intestinal tissue samples. Volunteers must be biopsy-diagnosed Celiacs who, as part of their care, will be undergoing an upper gastrointestinal

For this research, two small (a few milligrams) of additional tissue will be taken during the biopsy, frozen immediately, and transported to Stanford. Please note that volunteers undergoing procedures at locations other than Stanford Hospital could participate. The small amount of additional tissue does not constitute a significant additional risk over and above that you will undergo due to the endoscopy and routine biopsies for the pathologist to examine. The research has been approved by the Human Subjects Committee at Stanford University Medical Center.

It is gluten free, and often featured at gluten free expos I have attended. It is quite trusted by the community to be free of most allergens. I personally make and sell my own artisan blends of almond butters and prefer those, But I have used sun butter as a tahini substitute in some recipes as I have a issue with sesame seeds. Oddly enough it is and non nutty enough to be mixed savory into things, made a funny dip using garlic and onion with it and served it as a spread. Been years since I did that.

Thank you all very much, I have an appointment with my dermetologist today to look at the rashes I am having because they resemble DH, so I am hoping, given my family history, and if it is the rash they may be able to diagnose me that way, I'll keep my results and bring it to a gastro whenever I can afford to see them. And regaurding the mri yes they did an mri and I did have a lesion on my mri but just one

The company that makes Sunbutter says it is completely gluten-free. Has anyone had a reaction to it? thanks,

The fallout continues from General Mills' recall of nearly 2 million boxes of Gluten Free Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios in 2015, which occurred after workers at a California plant accidentally loaded gluten-free oat flour into trucks that had been holding wheat flour, which contains gluten, and which then contaminated batches of "gluten-free" cereal produced with the grain from those trucks. In comments to the U.S. Ninth Circuit court, plaintiffs representing a proposed class of consumers claimed that a lower court had erred in dismissing their lawsuit on the grounds that the company's recall program made the claims baseless.
