Celiac Disease

Celiac Disease is caused by an abnormal immune response to gluten. It is not known why only some of those genetically predisposed individuals who are exposed to gluten will ever develop the disease. Celiac Disease is more common in patients with Type 1 Diabetes than in non-diabetic individuals, and enteroviruses have been detected in the gut mucosa of patients with Celiac Disease. Vactech owns patented innovations to use antiviral strategies to cure and prevent Celiac Disease.
