Episode 18: Living with Celiac Disease
On November 15, Beyond Celiac held its 2nd research summit. The 2019 Summit built on the results of our innovative 2015 summit, which was widely hailed as highly impactful and led to new scientific collaborations and sharpening of the focus of celiac disease physician scientists. Our 2019 summit took place against the backdrop of at least 12 clinical trials for celiac disease treatments. Our aim was to comprehensively address elements that must be in place to get a drug to market, including the remaining barriers in this decades-long journey to help patients with celiac disease. Listen as the patient panel share their stories about what its like living with celiac disease. Sharing your story will give researchers an up-to-date understanding of what life is truly like with celiac disease. It is only with information from people with celiac disease that we accelerate research, including that of the drugs in the development pipeline, in order to find a treatment for celiac disease. Your story is the missing piece of the celiac disease puzzle. Joining Go Beyond Celiac will help break down the walls between our community and scientists so we can work hand-in-hand towards a better life with celiac disease.
