New Celiac Pill And Dh

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the celiac pill that is currently in FDA trials. I can't find any information on whether the pill would help those that suffer from DH. I was thinking/hoping/praying that it would help those that break out from the tiniest amount of cross-contamination, but I'm not sure. Curious to hear what others think. Thanks!

I, too, have read about this pill. I would think that it would work for DH if it stopped the body from reacting to gluten in the gut. The one problem I see with it is that, from what I have read, it only works for celiacs who have the DQ2 gene and not the ones who have the DQ8 gene. I am DQ8 or I'd be trying to find out how to get my hands on it!

I just did a little research and found that those with DH were not included in the clinical trials for AT-1001, one of the drugs being evaluated at the moment. Guess, no one really knows at this point. Thanks for the info!
