Genetic Research Study - The Columbia Genome Center Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons

Columbia Genome Center at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, NY: The Center is looking for families who have more than one member affected with Celiac Disease, to participate in a genetic research study. Information about the study is included below. All inquiries should be made to the Genetic Coordinator, Michele Pallai, at (203) 438-3582 or email: pallai@ibm.net.

The Columbia Genome Center is sponsoring a research program at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons to identify the gene responsible for Celiac Disease. Professor of Genetics and Development, T. Conrad Gilliam, renowned for mapping the genes responsible for Wilson disease and spinal muscular atrophy, is leading the investigation. In addition to his own research staff, Professor Gilliam has access to all of the resources of the Columbia Genome Center for ancillary support of this project.

Role of Families with Celiac Disease: The key to this type of study is the participation of families in which there are at least two family members affected with Celiac Disease. Participation of unaffected, as well as affected members may be needed. Those individuals who consent to participate will be asked to provide a sample of blood (20cc) for DNA analysis and give permission for release of their diagnostic records for review by Dr. Peter Green, Clinical Professor of Medicine. Blood collection can be done through a physicians office or a blood drawing laboratory. Participants will be provided with a blood drawing kit. The project will cover the costs of drawing the sample and its shipment. Guidance will be provided by the Genetic Coordinator, Michele Pallai.

Who can participate in the study? Anyone representing a family with two family members affected with Celiac Disease can participate. Why should I participate? The involvement of multiple families will best enable the identification of the genetic cause of Celiac Disease. It is anticipated that this identification will lead to earlier diagnosis and effective treatment. What will I have to do? You will need to donate a sample of blood and release your diagnostic records. Any incurred costs will be reimbursed.

All interested individuals should contact the Genetic Coordinator, Michele Pallai, at (203) 438-3582 or email: pallai@ibm.net

Why wouldn't it be gluten-free? whiskey is gluten-free. Wine is gluten-free.

Have you been tested for a stomach ulcer? That's what the pain sounds like to me. You can also get pain in your stomach from too much gas. Another possibility is GERD.

Well, you can always trial the gluten-free diet, but do it for at least six months. Act exactly as if you had celiac disease. Worry about cross contamination and learn to read labels. My own hubby did this per the very poor advice from two medical doctors 16 years ago (and we had good in...
