The Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) is looking for adults who have relatives with celiac disease but have not been diagnosed with celiac disease and are not on a gluten-free diet. Researchers are interested in testing the usefulness of a new investigational self-administered fingerstick blood test for celiac disease.
People who participate will be sent a packet with a fingerstick celiac test and a short survey. The survey and the test will be sent back to the Celiac Center at BIDMC in the provided envelope. Participation is expected to take less than 20 minutes. Please note that the fingerstick test is investigational (not FDA approved) and should not be used for celiac disease diagnosis.
BIDMC has a limited number of test kits available. They will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis with a limit of 2 kits per person.
This study is completely anonymous and BIDMC will not have any way to tell who was tested with these kits. The study is being conducted by Dr. Leffler at BIDMC and is being sponsored by 2G Pharma.
Participants must meet all of the following criteria:
