Gluten Free Raleigh Dispatch: 8-25-2009
  • Alvine Pharmaceuticals initiated patient enrollment in a Phase 2a trial for ALV003. 110 Celiac Disease patients will get ALV003 daily to determine patient benefits and the safety of the drug for use in treating Celiac. I've previously written about this drug and others.
  • Check out this great post from Nancy Lapid about staying Gluten Free at hotels.
  • Here is another from Nancy detailing useful back to school tips. Also, some more great back to school tips from Sure Foods Living.
  • University of Chicago's Celiac Disease Center is hosting it's annual Celiac Disease screening on October 10th in Chicago, IL. Wouldn't it be great to have something like that here?
  • Another back-to-school themed topic, any Gluten Free students out there attending a Triangle area university having a situation like this? Please let me know via email.
  • Great Celiac.com article about how gluten can affect your adrenal glands. Check this out if you have been Gluten Free for awhile but are still not feeling 100%.
  • Another Celiac.com article which shows the results of a recent study about the use of Anti-tissue Transglutaminase Antibodies in assessing successful management of Celiac Disease. The study finds that getting these anti-tTG antibodies measured as part of your long-term follow-up is an effective way to determine whether a Celiac patient is successfully staying healthy on a Gluten Free diet.
  • Check out the Gluten Free Tour of Whole Foods Cary on Aug 26th and a Gluten Free Vendor Fair at Whole Foods Winston-Salem on Aug 29th.
