Email of the day - on celiac disease treatments:

Your commentary on Celiac is of interest as I sufferer from this problem. Do you know who is doing the research, and can I find out any more information please

Eoin Treacy's view

Thank you for this question which highlights the acute need for a solution to an issue which represents a grave discomfort and inconvenience for large numbers of people. The original company to come up with the treatment is Cour Pharma which I believe is headquartered in Illinois.    

The re-education of the immune system to identify food items as friends rather than foes is a brand-new area of inquiry and represents a significant unmet need. Celiac disease is a significant autoimmune ailment but the big potential market is in arthritis for which there is currently no effective treatment. If the immune system can be taught not to attack the joints that would represent a major breakthrough for legions of potential customers.
