Drug Development and Clinical Trials

Researcher in lab

The gluten-free diet has proven to be an effective treatment for celiac disease, but there are many challenges in adopting and maintaining a gluten-free diet that can impact a person's quality of life and long-term health outcomes. Patients, doctors and researchers agree that there is a great need for alternative treatments that could replace or supplement the gluten-free diet.

This section will share information and updates about the drug discovery and development processes. Learn about the latest from pharmaceutical and biotech companies, as well as how you can get involved in clinical trials that will advance celiac disease research.
