Latest disease research published by Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center in Jerusalem.

A research report by Eran Israeli's of the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center in Jerusalem reveals that celiac disease screening in young adults can be cost effective.

'Thus, education of health professionals to increase awareness for celiac diseasediagnosis in symptomatic individuals, (thereby decreasing the time delay to diagnosis) may be a valid alternative to screening,' they say.
