Seeking Celiac Disease Patients for Clinical Research Study


If you or someone you know are at least 18 years old and are living with celiac disease, consider a clinical research study for help. Local researchers at Crescent Health Clinical need celiac disease patients to help test the safety and effectiveness of an investigational treatment for relief of celiac disease symptoms in adults.

  • Have followed a gluten-free diet for 6 consecutive months leading up to study entry
  • Have had abdominal cramping, bloating, gas, diarrhea, loose stool, or nausea at least 4 times during the month prior to screening

There are additional requirements to qualify for this study. A member of the study team will discuss these with you during screening.

What is Celiac Disease?

Celiac disease is a common disease that is diagnosed in approximately 200,000 Americans every year. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that can lead to damage in the small intestine if gluten is consumed. Because of the body’s rejection of gluten, patients are usually recommended to follow a gluten-free diet. If not managed, celiac disease can result in the body’s inability to properly absorb nutrients. When the small intestine is not working properly with celiac disease patients, flare ups can be painful.  Symptoms of celiac flare ups can include gas, cramps, diarrhea, and nausea.
