Among the survey’s key findings are that nearly 2 million people have CD, but most of them are unaware of it.

Celiac Disease Clinical Trial

Hey everyone, I came across this today and I ended up signing up to participate in this trial.  I go next Friday for my screening and then I guess they will let me know if I 100% qualify for the trial.

They told me that it of course is NOT a cure for Celiac Disease, but that it would help with the cross contamination that happens when we eat at a restuarant, for example, and the “unknown” happens.  I figured “what the heck”, the worst that could happen is nothing, but if something really great happens then I can say “I WAS PART OF THAT”.  Check it out for yourself.
