Mayo Clinic studying celiac and non-celiac gluten sensitivity

I recently met with Dr. Maria Vazquez Roque, a gastroenterologist at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville who specializes in celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

She told me about two studies going on through Mayo that you might be interested in. One is on gluten sensitivity for people who do not have celiac disease. This study is centered on understanding gluten sensitivity and how symptoms develop.

If you are interested in possibly participating in that study, you can call the study's coordinator, Jonathan Wright, at (904) 953-2014.

The other study is an ongoing examination of celiac disease done by Mayo and other organizations. This study focuses on celiacs who have been on a gluten-free diet for more than 12 months but continue to have symptoms.

You can find more on that study through its website,, or by calling Verna Skinner at (904) 953-0703.
