New York City – Columbia Presbyterian University Study
Join A Study on The Effect of a Gluten-Free Diet on Bone Density
Are you newly diagnosed with celiac disease?
If so, you may be eligible to join a study being done at Columbia Presbyterian University Medical Center examining the impact of celiac disease on your skeleton and following the effect of a gluten-free diet on density and quality.
Osteoporosis is one of the most common complications of celiac disease. And, approximately 75% of newly diagnosed patients with CD have some degree of bone loss.
Dr. Elizabeth Shane, Professor of Medicine at the Metabolic Bone Diseases Unit is working with Dr. Peter Green, Director of the Celiac Disease Center to examine the effect of a gluten-free diet on bone growth and regeneration. They will be utilizing a new machine that can actually "see" the structure and matrix of the inside of the bone as well as its density.
If you are:

RESEARCHERS SEEK ADULTS WITH CELIAC DISEASE
University of California, Irvine (reposted 10/26/10)
Please note the Celiac Study at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) has now moved to the City of Hope.
Adults that have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease are being sought for a study to identify factors associated with the development of Celiac Disease. The goal of the study is to find genes that may predispose individuals to develop this condition.
Adults eligible to participate in this study must have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease through a small intestinal biopsy. Spouses may also be eligible to participate.
Participants will be asked to provide a blood sample, complete a questionnaire, and provide medical records regarding their celiac diagnosis. There is no cost to participate. Necessary materials to have the blood drawn by the individual’s doctor, clinic, or lab will be sent. The study will pay for the cost of the blood draw, as well as overnight shipping to the lab. Participants will receive free antibody testing and be compensated $25 for their time to complete the questionnaire and provide a blood sample.
