Scientific American features article on Celiac Disease

Dr. Alessio Fasano, director of the Center for Celiac Research at the University of Maryland School of Medicine is featured in the August 2009 issue of Scientific American. The article entitled "Surprises from Celiac Disease" contains some very good graphics. It also explains the history of the disease, the genetic links and discusses the leaky gut involvement in autoimmune disorders. Possible future treatment options are also highlighted. This is a good reference article with current information. I picked up my copy of Scientific American at Barnes and Noble at the Streets of South Point.
