Researchers Seeking Adults with Celiac Disease

Adults that have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease are being sought to participate in a study to identify factors associated with the development of Celiac Disease.  The goal of the study is to find the genes that may predispose individuals to develop this autoimmune disease.  Adults eligible to participate in this study must have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease through a small intestinal biopsy. Spouses may also be eligible to participate.

Participants will be asked to provide a blood sample, complete a questionnaire, and provide medical records regarding their diagnosis. There is no cost to participate.  Necessary materials to have the blood drawn by the individual’s doctor, clinic, or lab will be sent.  The study will pay for the cost of the blood draw, as well as overnight shipping to the lab. Participants will receive free antibody testing and be compensated $25 for their time to complete the questionnaire and provide a blood sample.
