An Introduction to the CeliAction Study

0 comments April 24, 2014

This is the first of a series of sponsored posts about the Celiaction Study on my page. Since being diagnosed with celiac disease in 2010 I have been patiently waiting for treatment options to augment the GF diet.  Although I eat strictly GF and am safely able to do so in my home, I am at risk of gluten cross-contamination whenever I travel and/or eat outside of my home.  The enzyme being studied has the potential to reduce intestinal damage from gluten cross-contamination, and is also being evaluated as a treatment for those with nonresponsive celiac disease.  All comments and questions will receive a response from a Celiaction Study representative. -Jess

Managing celiac disease may be more than just a gluten-free diet.

A clinical research study called the CeliAction Study is researching if an investigational drug – which would be taken as a supplement to an attempted gluten-free diet – improves any symptoms of celiac disease.

You may qualify for the CeliAction Study if you:

  • Have been diagnosed with celiac disease by a healthcare professional
  • Are attempting to be on a gluten-free diet
  • Have experienced at least one moderate or severe symptom of celiac disease in the past month
If you participate in the CeliAction Study, you:
  • Will be able to maintain your current diet restrictions
  • Will be provided with study-related care at no cost
  • Do not need medical insurance to take part
  • May be compensated for time and travel
  • Will help advance medical research for celiac disease
To learn more about this research study and see if you qualify, visit CeliActionStudy.com or call 1-855-3333-ACT.
