“Clinical trials are research to try to determine if a new medical treatment is safe and does it work,” said Murray, who regularly sees patients and does research at the Mayo Clinic. He said 30 percent of celiac disease patients on a gluten-free diet still have symptoms, demonstrating a “substantial need” for new treatments.

“Only through research are we going to be able to improve the quality of life for people in the celiac disease community. And for research to progress, our community needs to be aware, interested and involved,” said Marie Robert, M.D., Beyond Celiac chief scientific officer and symposium moderator.
