The CDF Clinical Trial Finder was created to help people with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity, and healthy controls (people who do not have the disease), participate in clinical trials to accelerate the development of drugs and treatments. With up to 50% of patients continuing to experience symptoms and/or intestinal damage while on the gluten-free diet, finding a better treatment is crucial.
The purpose of a clinical trial is to determine the most effective and safest treatment for a disease. Clinical trials are a vital component of U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s drug approval process, without which advances in therapeutics for celiac disease patients are not possible. Your participation can end the needless suffering for generations to come.

Acute Abdomen in Adults- a Prospective Study on Emergency Department Admissions
This is a non-randomized, prospective, population-based, single-center study designed to evaluate conditions resulting emergency admission in patients with abdominal pain. Furthermore, we are interested in how many patients are discharged with "non-specific abdominal pain" but later readmitted and diagnosed with a specific diagnosis.18 Years and Over
A Low FODMAPs Diet in Celiac Patients With Persistent Gastrointestinal Symptoms
FODMAPS (fructose, oligosaccharides, monosaccharides, disaccharides and polyols) are characterised as fermentable but poorly absorbed carbohydrates which enter the colon and are utilised by colonic bacteria. During fasting colonic nutrients are scarce but ingesting FODMAPS causes a rapid increase in carbohydrate which can overwhelm the microbiota's ability to utilise substrate. The excess reducing equivalents will generate hydrogen or methane. The principal symptoms are diarrhoea and abdominal distension. Patients with irritable bowel syndrome appear to benefit by restricting intake, possibly because they are hypersensitive to intestinal...18 Years - 70 Years
Antibody Treatment for Advanced Celiac Disease
Background: - Celiac disease is a condition where the immune system attacks the cells of the small intestine. The intestine becomes inflamed and cannot digest food properly. The disease most often causes a reaction to foods that contain gluten. Most people can treat celiac disease with a gluten-free diet. However, some people have digestion problems even on a gluten-free diet. Researchers want to try a new antibody therapy for celiac disease. The treatment may block the immune reaction that causes the disease. They will test this antibody in people who have celiac disease that has not responded to a gluten-free diet. Objectives: ...18 Years and Over
Assessing Neurocognitive Effects of Gluten Exposure
Many patients with celiac disease complain of neurocognitive symptoms such as mental confusion, grogginess, difficulty with concentration and forgetfulness after exposure to gluten. However, there is little data on any possible association between impaired cognitive function and gluten intake in celiac disease. The investigators predict that patients with celiac disease, when exposed to gluten, will experience neurocognitive symptoms such as confusion, forgetfulness and difficulty concentrating. The goals of this study are to determine the prevalence of neurocognitive symptoms after exposure to gluten in patients with celiac disease and to...18 Years - 50 Years
Bakery Products for Non-Coeliac Gluten Sensitive Consumers
The aim of the study is to produce a tolerable alternative to normal wheat bread which would be suitable for subjects with self-reported non-coeliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS). The bread would be made from wheat so, in contrast to gluten-free bread, would be more comparable to standard bread. To make this bread, the investigators will use advanced enzyme technology and/or novel formulations to target the digestion or removal of wheat proteins, which might be involved in the etiology of non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, preferentially over other those that are more useful for baking quality. The investigators will determine palatability and...18 Years - 70 Years
Bio-markers of Not-celiac Wheat Sensitivity
The aim of the investigators' study is to evaluate biochemical, immunological and histological characteristics of patients affected with the so-called "gluten (or wheat) sensitivity" who suffers from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)-like symptoms. As it is not known what component of the cereals causes the symptoms in so called "gluten-sensitive" patients, the investigators prefer to speak of "not-celiac wheat sensitivity" (NCWS). NCWS patients may be defined as ones, neither celiac or allergic to wheat, who develop symptoms following wheat consumption, that improved on wheat/gluten free diet (GFD). For our research, we will select...18 Years - 65 Years
Case Finding for Coeliac Disease Using a Point of Care Test in a Pharmacy Setting
This study aims to assess whether it is feasible to use a point of care test to increase the detection of coeliac disease in a pharmacy setting.18 Years - 80 Years
Celiac Disease and Diabetes Longitudinal Follow-up and Evaluation Study
To the investigators' knowledge, no single long-term prospective observational study has assessed dietary factors, diabetes clinical variables (metabolic control and associated complications), and self -perceived health and wellness in T1D patients (both pediatric and adult) with CD identified by screening (positive/weakly positive serology). The aim of the current study is to observe the short- and long-term outcomes for Type 1 diabetic patients with new serology positive asymptomatic CD.8 Years - 50 Years
Celiac Disease Database
The focus of this study is to create a database containing information about patients with celiac disease. This database will allow us to examine clinical and epidemiologic features of the University of Chicago Medical Center patient population. We have the largest population of patients with celiac disease in the mid-West and as such this study using information gathered from our database can greatly contribute to our current understanding of this disease.N/A - 70 Years
Celiac Disease Diagnosis in Patients With Weakly Positive Serum Anti-Transglutaminase: Duodenal Anti-Endomysium Assay.
Celiac disease (CD) is a chronic immune-mediated disorder that occurs in genetically predisposed populations. Patients affected by the disease may be asymptomatic or manifest classic malabsorption symptoms of diarrhea, steatorrhea, abdominal pain, and weight loss after gluten ingestion (and related derivatives found in other grains). Diagnosis and screening begin with the use of serologic tests, i.e. IgA anti-tissue transglutaminase (tTG) and IgA anti-endomysial antibodies (EmA). Duodenal biopsy, still considered by many as the criterion necessary for diagnosis, demonstrates the pathologic findings of small intestinal villous atrophy, crypt...18 Years - 70 Years
