NEW! Opportunity to Participate in Celiac Research  

 

test tubes

Alan Goldsobel, MD, in San Jose will be conducting a research study for a potential treatment for celiac disease on behalf of Alvine Pharmaceuticals in San Carlos.  The study drug, when taken with meals, degrades gluten up to 96% and renders the peptides non-immunogenic.

 

 

The study is currently recruiting interested participants, ages 18-80, with a history of MD-diagnosed celiac disease, previous positive endoscopy, who are on a gluten free diet, but still having breakthrough symptoms.  The study med is taken 3 times a day with meals.  There will be 2 endoscopies during the study.  All of this is at no charge to the subject and they are compensated for their time.

 

Alvine Pharmaceuticals
More information regarding the study drug (ALV-003) can be seen on the Alvine Pharmaceuticals website http://www.alvinepharma.com/If you would like information about participating in the study, please contact Rosanna Hernandez rhernandez@allergycare.comKristi Annecone RN,FNP kma@allergycare.com, or Nancy Branon RN nbranon@asthmaresearch.com
