Jennifer Iscol, of the Celiac Community Foundation of Northern California, just distributed this message regarding a celiac disease study at Stanford University.
“Volunteers are needed for a genetic study on celiac disease at Stanford University. Please consider participating. Community participation is an essential component of Stanford’s celiac disease research. The research benefits all of us and future generations.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
For general information about patient rights, please contact: 1-866-680-2906
– 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.
