The latest medical news for people with allergies and food sensitivities
Australian researchers say theyve identified the key components in oats that cause an immune response in some people with celiac disease. The team said in a press release that the findings may lead to better tests for oat toxicity and have implications for new treatments being developed for celiac. Their work also supports the safety of oats for the majority of celiacs. Just 8 percent of the 73 celiacs who took part in the study reacted to oats. The study was published in November 2014 in the Journal of Autoimmunity.
