This is GREAT!!! If it works! My only question is that it says that it relieves the symptoms of gluten, but does it still do damage to your intestines? If it does then you still do not want to eat gluten, as the immediate symptoms are only part of the problem.

Thanks for sharing, and I can't wait to see if it will work for us!!

I copy and pasted this, "But now, a new pill called Larazotide Acetate has shown to prevent some of the damage to the small intestine gluten causes."

Thank you Sandy for posting this! It's good information, but nothing to get too excited about yet.

This is the study that is currently being conducted. We have several members that are participants in this study. It is in the clinical stages. This "Cure" is not that at all. It MAY prevent some symptoms of accidental cross contamination.

Here is more information from this forum on AT 1001:

SORRY THAT LINK DID NOT WORK. Do your own local search for AT1001 on this site. You will find a lot of information.

Certainly not a cure. Considering the effects of celiacs extends far beyond just simple intestinal damage any pill would have to attack gluten itself.
