While summaizing a response to the listserve I found the reference to the 'O' in Celiac Testing from
www.celiac.ca/pdfs/Pharmacy_Practice
_0
8-2007.pdf

The article starts on P 18 and the 'O' reference is in the chart on P19.

Linda - not off topic at all: very en pointe I believe!

Thanks Donna - I get it now. :)

This was a very interesting article but I would not want to try it until further research is done. I did not know about the peanut one either. I still think things like this has to have a lot of research.
I also would like to know what the side affects are like someone mentioned before. Sometimes the side effects are worse than the "cure".
GOD BLESS!

Slightly off topic, but aren't they proposing to do the same thing (desensitize) for people with severe peanut allergies? Linda C

Dot, 0, I mean when I have head my blood tested to see where I am at I have never shown to have 0 glutens in my body. (I should have entered 0 and not O) My lowest number has been 3, I think. Maybe I am one of those few who gets all the necessary nutrients even though there may be some villi damage. Of course than I know I am put together differently than most people. I have had the blood work and all is great. Personally I am glad for the research. We can never know when the jackpot will be hit.

I don't even understand the "desensitized" word useage - what does that MEAN? If the end result is for healthy villi (and like you said Barb, gf diet does this) might this be helpful for those with refractory sprue?

TBDonna: please clarify "had a O on their bloodtests" - what's 'O' mean?

And that has run through my mind as well: never knowing a diagnosis. But I think I would have died eventually, so I put that out of my mind.

Yes,I did notice that, but there are so many of us who have never had a O on their blood tests that it might be an answer for them. I would have to know a lot more before I would think of being a part of a trial like this. My CD wasn't diagnosed because of any symptoms, just a fluke. At times I wish I never knew.

Did you notice at the end of the article it says "The vaccine itself is intended to gradually desensitize the coeliac sufferer, so that gluten is tolerated. Consequently, the villi in the small intestine should revive and absorb nutrients in the normal way."
Since we have healed our intestines with a gluten free diet, this study would indicate you have to damage it again or get newly biopsy diagnosed celiacs to use as guinea pigs and maybe delay their recovery. Given the number of health impacts for the newly diagnosed, I'm surprised by this article.

Wow, Since this is very early in the trials I wouldn't even think about giving it to my kids. Wonder how it will work.

Thanks for posting.

Nope, but I would sure like to know more. I wonder how we can follow up on his research. I am thinking about mailing him a note. I just wonder if he will read it.

It sounds very interesting, but before I would be willing to get the vaccine, I would want to know what the side effects are.
