It is believed that the second round of tests is expected to take place in Melbourne and, after that, several other cities around Australia, but patients from the United States and New Zealand are also expected to be enrolled in the trial.

"The vaccine is designed to target the 90 percent of celiac disease patients with the HLA-DQ2 genetic form of the disease. A successful therapy that can restore normal gluten tolerance would revolutionize celiac disease management.”

HOW TO DEAL WITH THE DISEASE

Nowadays, there is no treatment nor cure for celiac disease, and people who suffer from the condition have to resort to cutting out gluten from their diet.

If a celiac disease sufferer ingests the protein, he or she can experience abdominal pain, vomiting diarrhea and several other issues related to the small intestine.
