Researchers are seeking children and adolescents with celiac disease to participate in a research study that involves a one-time, in-person interview.
Researchers need to understand firsthand what it’s like to experience celiac disease symptoms and the daily experiences of living with celiac disease as reported by children, adolescents and their parents.
The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) is working with AbbVie and ICON Clinical Research to find children diagnosed by a doctor with celiac disease who are willing to participate in a one-time, 60-minute, in-person interview. In some cases, parents may be asked to join the interview.
The goal of the study is to develop new tools that will help doctors to measure celiac disease symptoms in kids and adolescents based on information provided by the child and their parents/guardians. Interviews will be conducted close to the participant’s home. Minimal travel to the interview location may be required.
In order to participate in this research, children or adolescents must be:
- Diagnosed with celiac disease by a doctor
- Between the ages of 8-17
- On a gluten-free diet for at least 6 months
- Experiencing celiac disease symptoms currently or within the last month
For children between 8 and 10 years old, a parent must also be available to be interviewed. There are also other requirements that children or adolescents must meet in order to participate.
The questionnaire must be completed November 11, 2015. If you qualify to participate and complete the interview process, you will receive a $100 pre-paid gift card.
