Medical Study Looking for Candidates

Allergy Research Associates is looking for 30 subjects with a history compatible with gluten enteropathy who have undergone official medical evaluation within the past 2 years. They need either results from a small bowel biopsy or blood work indicating the presence of Tissue Transglutaminase IgG or IgA.

Carol Pehl and Carol Sandich of Allergy Associates Research are coming to attend the next GIG meeting on Saturday August 14th with consent forms to take home and read over and will be there for any questions about participating in this research. The research paperwork is finally done and they will start this month.

The purpose of this research is to develop the Flash Sensor, a low cost and immediate result test for celiac disease that physicians can use in their office.

People will need to be between the ages of 18-65 and not be pregnant. One tube of blood is only required and each person will be paid $30 for their participation. The blood will not be drawn at the meeting.

Come to the meeting Saturday or contact:
