New Injection Could Mean End To Gluten-Free Diets For Coeliacs Pexels

An international trial is underway to test a vaccine scientists hope will end the need for coeliacs to adhere to gluten-free diets.

The trial comes eight years after a Melbourne-designed injection was shown to be safe in the first patients.

It's hoped the treatment will allow the immune system's abnormal toxic response to gluten to be reprogrammed allowing 160,000 Australians with coeliac disease to avoid a strict lifelong gluten-free diet.
