yes, there is some research, but much of it is being done overseas. there's not a lot of research on it - 'cause there's not a lot of money. but if you've got a few million to donate to the research cause... :lol: it doesn't help that there isn't a huge push to find a pill or something, because we already have a "cure" - the gluten-free diet. (it "cures" the villious atrophy, which is the disease itself. curing the genetic cause of the reaction to gluten, however, will require a lot more work in gene therapy.)

At my last support group meeting a woman was talking about research being done. . .I don't recall it being overseas. . .but it was more abut vaccinations to help lessen reactions. . I think. . .and work to a cure.

Oooooh.....lessen reactions......that sounds GREAT! I'd be leary of a "miracle pill" that allowed the ingestion of wheat, but I think a pill to lessen reactions would be great!......especially since some people get so bad with gluten that they need to go to the hospital..........that's terrific, thanks for sharing, Kristina
