Celiac Sprue Research Foundation Seeks Volunteers for an Important Study

Celiac.com 11/25/2003 - Investigators from the Celiac Sprue Research Foundation, a non-profit public charity, and the Palo Alto Medical Foundation are seeking 20 volunteers who have Celiac Sprue to participate in a study called the "Gluten Detoxification Trial". The Gluten Detoxification Trial will test the effects of consumption of an Orange Juice Mixture that has been modified by the addition of gluten pre-treated with an enzyme (PEP) that is intended to "detoxify" the gluten. If the PEP is successful in detoxifying the gluten, then the stage will be set for development of a PEP therapeutic drug, or pill, that may allow Celiac Sprue patients to consume a regular gluten containing diet.

The study involves 2 two-week stages, separated by one month off. The first stage will occur during the first two weeks in December. The second stage will occur during late January 2004. Participants in this study will be randomized to consume an Orange Juice Mixture containing gluten daily for 14 days during one stage, and an Orange Juice Mixture containing gluten pre-treated with the PEP daily for 14 days during the other stage. Participants will record symptoms daily during each stage, and will have laboratory tests measured before and after each stage. Participants will undergo a screening physical exam at the beginning, and brief follow-up exams after each stage at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation.

Participants in the Gluten Detoxification Trial must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be in remission on a gluten-free diet.
  • Be at least 18 years of age.

Pre-registration is required to participate in the study. If you can participate, please contact the Celiac Sprue Research Foundation at the above address or e-mail address and request a registration packet/consent.

check out CoQ10, not related to celiac (as far as I know) but for balance issues.

remind your hubby, "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody gonna be happy."

Thank you for all your help with this. I was also wondering if I could ask and hope you don't mind, will they be able to tell Celiac on the camera or will it be down to the biopsies they take? My endoscopy is on the 9th, and I am worried about not having enough gluten to show.

Vegetarian here too, celiac really makes it tough as all the Quorn meat replacement products bar the odd one or two are out Then there's all the scare sites saying only paleo type diets will repair your insides but guess what they're all heavily meat / fish based. @Ennis_TX has some good ideas for meals

Wow guys just read all the replies Thankyou all so much!!! There are so many things you've all said that has triggered a light bulb in my little head! The glasses may not be clean!! I will put this to a test. One night I'll stick to bottles of cider (double checked are gluten-free) another I'll try the Gin or William chase vodka if I can find it! And see the effects. if I loose many days due to these not working I'll see a practitioner and see what the deal is! Before I was diagnosed at Coeliac... I went to a herbalist who did a test and said corn is funny on my body!!! But then 18months later (when I became incontinant and lost a lot of weight) my bloods came back positive (after begging the docs and telling them it wasn't IBS) i don't tend to snack at bars on food but I must admit I never thought it could be the way it's served!! The humour and information has made me feel so much better thanks all xxx
