Celiac Cure in a Pill

For people with celiac disease, a meal involving wheat products can trigger stomach cramping, diarrhea, and bloating. The condition is caused by the body’s inability to process gluten, which leads to the release of inflammatory mediators that can harm the digestive tract. Until now, the only hope for people with celiac disease was to avoid gluten altogether; however it appears that a new drug called AT-1001 may help by reducing the absorption of nutrient proteins in the intestine, which also reduce the absorption of gluten. Therefore, the pill potentially will allow patients to have a meal that contains gluten. News Channel 6, June 3, 2009
