Celiac Disease Research

The world of celiac disease research changes and evolves each and every day. Beyond Celiac keeps the community up-to-date on research in many ways, including our Research News Feed and the Research Opt-In.

Celiac Disease Research News


Our Letter to the Editor Advocating for Patients Published in Gastroenterology

Recently, a group of researchers published their recommendations for standardizing celiac disease clinical trials. While on the whole we agree with the content, we were dismayed to learn that no patients or patient organizations had been consulted to develop these guidelines. We are proud to say that our response, a letter to the editor, was recently published in Gastroenterology.


Multiple courses of antibiotics may play role in celiac disease development for at-risk children, study finds

If a child at risk for celiac disease is prescribed antibiotics multiple times, it may increase the chance that celiac disease will develop, according to a new study. Antibiotics were tied to an increase in a protein that loosens the connection between cells in the intestine. In the future, tests for that protein might be used to determine who is likely to develop celiac disease.

Potential Celiac Disease Vaccines

A potential celiac disease vaccine could one day be a reality. Whenever new information is available we update our Research News and our Celiac Disease Vaccine page.

Celiac Disease Clinical Trials

Researchers around the world are working to develop new treatments for celiac disease. As a person affected by celiac disease, you can play an important role in advancing research by participating in clinical trials. View our Clinical Trials Infographic to learn how clinical trials tie into to drug development process.

Additionally, Beyond Celiac has been directly involved with assisting a number of clinical studies in all phases. With the largest celiac disease social community, a robust email and research database and a website that receives over 2 million visits a year, we are uniquely qualified to help your clinical trial recruit qualified candidates.
