Celiac Disease Vaccine Now Under Trial Could Allow People to Eat Gluten Again

Celiac disease sufferers may soon be able to safely eat gluten, thanks to a new vaccine currently undergoing testing worldwide.

The vaccine, called Nexvax2, targets the immune system to stop the inflammation that typically occurs when people with celiac disease consume gluten. It was first tested in 2011, for the initial trial phase, and was found to be safe.

The company that produces Nexvax2, the Massachusetts-based ImmusanT, received $ 40 million in funding in 2017, allowing them to continue researching the vaccine. The second round of testing will start in Melbourne, before going out to other cities in Australia. ImmusanT hopes to enroll 150 patients from the United States, Australia and New Zealand in the trial.

“The vaccine is designed to target the 90 percent of celiac disease patients with the HLA-DQ2 genetic form of disease,” Dr. Jason Tye-Din, the head of celiac research and gastroenterologist at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, where the trial will start, told the Sydney Morning Herald. “A successful therapy that can restore normal gluten tolerance would revolutionize celiac disease management.”

Currently, there is no treatment for celiac disease — the only option is to cut out gluten entirely. While going gluten-free became trendy among health-conscious people in the last decade, for celiac disease sufferers the protein poses a severe risk to their small intestine, and causes diarrhea, abdominal pain and vomiting.

Nexvax2 won’t immediately enable people with celiac to eat gluten again — rather, the vaccine will slowly build up an immunity to the proteins in gluten and end the negative side effects.

“Through this study we anticipate making new insights that will further our ability to demonstrate specific suppression of the immune response to gluten epitopes and associated effects of celiac disease,”Dr. Ken Truitt, ImmusanT chief medical officer, told BeyondCeliac.org.

Coeliac Disease the hidden epidemic!: Discover The Amazing Health Benefits Of Gluten Free Foods And Avoid Coeliac/Celiac Disease Including Any Gluten Allergy Today!


Without doubt, we may all like the taste and flavor that gluten add to our diet but it is also well known that it causes far reaching debilitating effects on many that it is not welcome in most homes as it’s brand-named unhealthy! However, the truth is that Gluten is a type of protein found in some certain foods like barley, malts, wheat, triticale and rye. In fact, Gluten is typically used to improve the taste or flavor of foods; besides, it can also act as stabilizers and thickeners for foods. As a matter of fact, it is usually branded as dextrin. Nevertheless, when we talk of a gluten free diet, we are referring to a diet which does not consist of foods containing the gluten protein. In that way, one can actually avoid the reaction to it as a result of allergies! But you need to bear in mind that the only type of therapy which has been clinically proven to help persons with a condition known as celiac or coeliac disease is to consume gluten free diet. This is why we shall be focusing on some gluten free foods with health benefits so that we can enjoy! Well, before I forget, let me say that other medical conditions that also respond to gluten free diet includes dermatitis herpetiformis and wheat allergies. And, it may interest you to know that oats may not qualify as a gluten free diet as a matter of fact medical professionals are yet to be certain that oats do not aggravate any reaction in persons suffering from celiac disease due to cross contagion in handling amenities. Now, the expression “gluten free” is used to display either a total absence, or a microscopic quantity of gluten. Well, where the total elimination is almost impossible …as in several cases, gluten free indicates there is a mild or harmless quantity of the protein since a total lack is doubtful. Yes, as a matter of fact, you need to bear in mind that ingesting less than 10mg of gluten daily is not likely to trigger any allergic reactions especially in persons that are sensitive to gluten.

Cooking Gluten Wheat and Dairy Free

Cooking Gluten Wheat and Dairy Free


If you suffer from allergies or intolerances to dairy, wheat and gluten, the problem you face in having to avoid these is that they are the most commonly used ingredients in food manufacture. So you will find it very difficult to buy ready-made foods which do not contain at least one of these products. This is means you will have to cook for yourself. If you are to stick to a dairy, gluten and wheat free diet, you need know what your forbidden ingredients are, where they are likely to turn up and what alternatives to use, all of which are explained in this book. There are 200 recipes for soups, starters, light lunches, egg dishes, pasta and pizzas, fish, meat, poultry and game, salads, vegetables and vegetarian dishes, desserts, breads, biscuits and cakes – all of which are milk, cream, butter, cheese, yogurt, wheat, gluten and lactose free. Michelle Berriedale-Johnson is an expert on food allergies and intolerances. She has spent all her career in the food business, first as a caterer then as a journalist and food writer. She became interested in special diets over 20 years ago when her son was diagnosed as being dairy intolerant. She set up a food company, Berrydales, specialising in additive free, dairy free, gluten free and egg free foods and a quarterly magazine, The Inside Story, about dietary problems. In 2000 The Inside Story, was re-named Foods Matter, and became a subscription magazine supporting anyone with a food allergy, food intolerance or living on a free-from diet. Foods Matter has now become an online magazine and portal www. foodsmatter.com. Michelle is also the author of one of Grub Street’s best-selling books The Everyday Wheat-Free and Gluten-Free Cookbook.

Is Gluten Hiding in Your Beauty Routine?

Buyers beware! There could be gluten hiding in your beauty regimen!

I learned this lesson recently and could not believe that I never stopped to think about it before. When I was diagnosed with celiac disease I cleaned out my kitchen completely. I got new groceries, new appliances, researched the best gluten-free products, and hunted online for the closest place to get a good gluten free-bagel (NYC people, you must visit Jennifer’s Way Bakery in the East Village!).

Unfortunately, I never stopped to think about my beauty routine and how products I use daily like soap, shampoo, and moisturizer could contain gluten. At first I thought, how could I miss this? How could I have risked accidental glutening?! But to be fair no doctor ever warned me of the potential risks, and on top of that it can actually be pretty difficult to discern whether or not there could be gluten in your soap or cosmetics. Instead of seeing something clearly gluten containing like “wheat” on the ingredient list it is more likely that you would see a name like “hydrolyzed vegetable protein,” which isn’t necessarily so obvious (at least to me!).

When I found out that a number of my products weren’t gluten free my initial reaction was panic and distress. I just couldn’t believe I never stopped to check. The fact that we often have to go to extreme lengths just to make sure our food is safe is a lot of work as it is, but now we have to worry about food, medications, AND cosmetics? Sometimes it really feels like gluten is hiding around every corner, and that gets pretty exhausting when you are just trying to lead a normal and healthy life. But, knowledge is power! And with that I set off investigating.

I started by consulting a friend of mine, a fellow celiac and a really amazing advocate for the gluten free community. She has been living with celiac disease for quite some time and is always helping me on my gluten-free journey. You may know her as Anti-Wheat Girl! Through her help and some online resources I learned that the general consensus from the medical community is that gluten absorbed through the skin should not be cause for concern among celiacs, but the chance of accidental ingestion and glutening is an issue.

The next step was to clean out my bathroom cabinet and replace the gluten-filled products with healthy gluten-free ones. At first it was really challenging to find products that were gluten-free. Speaking with company after company got really exhausting, especially when the answers weren’t definitive. Thankfully there are a number of companies with gluten free products out there who were happy to help and offered very clear answers. Mane ‘n Tail for example was incredibly helpful! I also discovered that Tarte, a cosmetic line easily found in Sephora, is completely gluten-free! I love their products to begin with, so I was thrilled to learn that they are safe!

Immediately after cleaning out the cabinets I headed to Sephora to stock up on Tarte. At checkout I was offered some free samples which I normally decline since I have a million allergies, but this time was different! The free sample I got at checkout was a completely gluten-free skin brightening and exfoliating treatment from the brand Tata Harper. I was so happy to have received a sample that for once looked like it was made for me! All of the Tata Harper products are made in Vermont with no animal testing, are certified vegan, organic, free of toxins, artificial fragrances, synthetics, GMOs and gluten. I haven’t tried any of their products yet but I am excited to get started testing their samples — I only wish I had gotten more!

This lesson was certainly a tough one to learn, but I’m grateful to have realized it when I did. If you’ve had trouble finding gluten free cosmetics and beauty products, or if you’ve had some great experiences, I would love to know. Share your story, frustrations, excitement, and favorite gluten free brands with me at hannah.crane@nyu.edu.
