Coeliac Disease Clinical Trials - Wesley Research Institute
Wesley Research Institute

If you or someone you know has coeliac disease, they may be eligible to take part in our coeliac disease clinical trials.  

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.

You can help progress coeliac disease research!  If you or someone you know has coeliac disease, they may be eligible to take part in clinical trials.  Through participating in a clinical trial, you are directly helping community access to better diagnostics, improved treatments and enhanced management of this disease. 

The Clinical Trials Centre at Wesley Research Institute has been managing trials since 1994, and is located within the Wesley Hospital.
