About this clinical trial

An estimated one in 70 Australians have Coeliac Disease which is caused when an intolerance to gluten in wheat, rye and barley products triggers an autoimmune response that attacks the small intestine. However, it is estimated that more than 80 per cent of all Australian coeliac sufferers remain undiagnosed. If left untreated, coeliac disease is associated with a three-fold increase in the risk of autoimmune diseases, osteoporosis, and malignancy, decreased quality of life, and a two to four-fold increase immortality.

The disease can also lead to juvenile tooth decay, malnutrition, depression, and infertility. Patients with coeliac disease can experience a wide range of symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, fatigue and weight loss.

A/Prof James Daveson and his team are developing a world leading multi-disciplinary research program for Coeliac Disease and Immune Health. However we can’t do this research without the coeliac community participating and volunteering to take part in clinical trials. Interested? Register your interest below.

  • Adults 18-75 years
