Do you know how celiac disease works?

Celiac disease research continues to prove the need for a non-dietary therapy, and scientists are moving closer to developing a pharmaceutical treatment. Now, it is more important than ever for patients to learn about the field of immunology - a critical piece to the celiac disease puzzle that is often left out of patient education - as well as understand the basics about the drug development and approval process.

The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) welcomed two immunology and pharmacology experts for a 1-hour discussion on this topic. The webinar recording and slides are now available for you to download on demand.
