On November 18, 2022, Dr. Nielsen Fernandez-Becker, director of the Celiac Disease Program at Stanford Health Care, provided a live presentation on the NIAID-funded study, Solutions for Celiac. The event was co-hosted by the Celiac Community Foundation of Northern California, a nonprofit organization that offers support, education and advocacy.

This webinar-style presentation explained what’s involved in the Solutions for Celiac study, one of several celiac disease clinical trials currently being conducted at the center. The short presentation was followed by a live Q&A session with Dr. Fernandez-Becker and the study team. View the recorded webinar.

Solutions for Celiac is a non-invasive research study for those with celiac disease. It involves an investigational medication in the form of a powdered drink, taken with each meal, and designed to potentially reduce the symptoms of accidental glutening. Participation involves up to 6 visits over a 26-week period. Learn more and sign up:
