CELIAC FAMILY STUDY
DOES YOUR FAMILY STRUGGLE WITH CELIAC DISEASE OR
Families eligible to participate in this celiac study must have at least two relatives (with the exception of simple parent-child pairs) diagnosed with celiac sprue or dermatitis herpetiformis by at least one of the following methods: a small intestinal biopsy, a positive transglutaminase (tTG) antibody test, a positive endomysial (EMA) antibody test, or a positive skin biopsy (for dermatitis herpetiformis). After meeting the eligibility criteria to enroll a family, all first degree relatives of those who have been diagnosed with celiac sprue or dermatitis herpetiformis will be invited to participate in the study. These participants will receive a free antibody test for screening of celiac disease if they are not currently on a gluten free diet and have not recently been tested for celiac sprue.
