What is celiac disease?
Celiac disease, gluten intolerance or non-celiac gluten intolerance are immune reactions to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and spelt. An estimated one percent of all Americans suffer from celiac disease, though many have never been diagnosed and are not receiving treatment. Many more are gluten intolerant. Click here to learn more.
Thirty percent (30%) of people newly diagnosed with celiac are more than 60 years old. Click here to get free information for seniors who need to live a gluten-free lifestyle.

Review Article: Coeliac Disease, New Approaches to Therapy by S. Rashtak; J. A. Murray. Posted: 04/03/2012; Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics. 2012;35(7):768-781. © 2012 Blackwell Publishing.
Abstract: Coeliac disease is managed by life-long gluten withdrawal from the diet. However, strict adherence to a gluten-free diet is difficult and is not always effective. Novel therapeutic approaches are needed to supplement or even replace the dietary treatment.
Aim: To review recent advances in new therapeutic options for coeliac disease.
Results: Several new therapeutic approaches for coeliac disease are currently under development by targeting its
underlying pathogenesis. Alternate therapies range from reproduction of harmless wheat strains to immunomodulatory approaches. Some of these therapies
such as enzymatic cleavage of gluten and permeability inhibitors have shown promise in clinical studies.
Conclusions: Gluten-free diet is still the only practical treatment for patients with coeliac disease. Novel strategies provide promise of alternative adjunctive approaches to diet restriction alone for patients with this disorder.
