Celiac Disease Foundation Chief Executive Officer, Marilyn Geller, attended The State of Autoimmune Disease: A National Summit at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The Summit explored the current trends in diagnosis, treatment, and therapies, presented by experts in research, environment, advocacy, and patient issues.
New drugs on the research horizon could spare people with celiac the pain of accidentally eating pizza or pasta. Even with the best intentions, living gluten-free is much easier said than done. It was almost impossible to tell which packaged “gluten-free” foods lived up to their claims until late last year when the U.S. Food […]
The Kansas Wheat Commission is spending $200,000 to identify everything in wheat’s DNA sequences that can trigger a reaction in people suffering from celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder in which eating even tiny amounts of gluten can damage the small intestine.
