Celiac Study

ACDA member Alvine Pharmaceuticals is sponsoring a study at the Celiac Center at BIDMC where researchers are working to create a new survey to measure symptoms of celiac disease.This survey may be used in the future to test new treatments for celiac disease.

Researchers are looking for people 18 or older (adults) who have biopsy-proven celiac disease, and who have experienced celiac related symptoms within the last 3 months. Participants will take an automated phone survey daily for 7 days and take an internet survey twice. This should take about 10 minutes each day.

Study participants will be compensated for their time.
