Researchers are working on an experimental new drug for celiac disease.
As an important first step, researchers are currently collecting blood samples from two types of patients (as outlined below). All study participants must have been formally diagnosed with celiac disease by a doctor and must be able to provide documentation. The blood draw and collection are being held in Fall River, Massachusetts, 02720 and this one-time visit will take 30 minutes.
You may qualify to participate in this study if you are:
- At least 18 years old
- Have been diagnosed with celiac disease in the last 90 days and have been on a gluten-free diet for no longer than 90 days
- Have been diagnosed with celiac disease and have been on a strict gluten-free diet for the last 12 months with no symptoms
If you qualify and provide a blood sample, you'll receive at no cost:
- Confirmation of your celiac disease gene type(s) (HLA-DQ2 or HLA-DQ8)
- $20 for your time
There are other requirements to participate in this study. There's one easy step to get started.
