Refractory Celiac Disease Clicincal Trial Participants Needed
Do you have refractory celiac disease and not respond at all to a gluten-free diet? This medical trial might be for you. Please use the contact information below for more information.

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is seeking individuals diagnosed with Refractory Celiac Disease.

While most people can treat celiac disease with a strict gluten-free diet, a small number of patients fail to respond to a gluten-free diet and continue to have significant and severe symptoms. This is called refractory celiac disease and can increase the risk of mortality and developing lymphoma.

  • Currently, there are no established treatments for refractory celiac disease 
  • The goal is to study a new treatment for refractory celiac disease 
  • The drug targets the effects of a signal (IL-15) in the body that is believed to cause much of the damage in the intestine
  • It is hoped that this drug will lessen the damage in the intestine and/or lessen the severity of refractory celiac disease 
  • The study involves multiple trips to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota; Travel and lodging expenses qualify for reimbursement for required visits 

If you are interested or want more information, please contact: Carol Van Dyke by telephone at (507)-266-7842 or email
