A synthetic enzyme

I was watching the news a couple of nights ago and there was a story about a treatment for celiac that is under development. It sounds kind of neat because some researchers have been able to invent an enzyme that doesn't exist in nature that can destroy gliadin. Obviously the goal is to treat people with celiac disease. It sounds like it might also be promising for NCGS too. It might be something that's already been mentioned on the forum, but if not I thought I'd bring it up. It's still in development so probably a long ways from becoming an actual treatment. It's hopeful to hear that progress is potentially being made.

This is info about it: http://hsnewsbeat.uw.edu/story/uw-spin-out-seeks-develop-celiac-disease-therapy

This is the news story I saw: http://komonews.com/news/healthworks/uw-researchers-developing-cure-for-celiac-disease

I wasn't sure where to post this, so if it needs to be moved to a different section that's fine. :)
