Announcement from Stanford:

We are conducting a study to understand the genetic basis of celiac disease.  Families with at least one parent and one child with celiac disease are encouraged to enroll together.

The study involves:

–  A one-time blood donation

Participation requirements for families:

–  A parent and a child with a diagnosis of celiac disease made by a physician
–  A parent and a child without a diagnosis of celiac disease

For more information on the study, please contact our Stanford Celiac Study team: cedunn@stanford.edu

For general information about patient rights, please contact: 1-866-680-2906

Additional information:

– Participants can live anywhere in the United States. Stanford can send a phlebotomist from a commercial lab to your home throughout the country.

– Participants do not incur any costs and are not compensated.

– In the parent/child pairs, the “child” can be an adult.

– Stanford University’s celiac studies are for academic purposes to improve the understanding of celiac disease.
