Our researchers are leading clinical studies into coeliac disease.

We are conducting a range of clinical studies which include:

  • Investigating how gluten affects the immune system in adults and children with coeliac disease.
  • Developing new genetic and immune approaches to diagnosing coeliac disease
  • Investigating differences between gluten sensitivity and coeliac disease.
  • Understanding how gluten causes symptoms and how they can be treated.
  • Determining the safety of oats consumption in coeliac disease.
  • Testing and developing a variety of new therapies to treat coeliac disease.

These studies involve volunteers with coeliac disease, gluten sensitivity and healthy volunteers. Members of the public can participate, subject to meeting eligibility requirements.
