British Drug For Gluten Intolerance

Postby beforewisdom » Tue Dec 20, 2011 4:58 pm

A coworker of mine has a daughter with gluten intolerance who told her there is now a drug in use in the UK that manages that intolerance, though it hasn't been approved by the FDA for use in the U.S..

Does anyone know the name of the drug or have any other information about it?

Just curious

Thanks in advance either way.

How would that work? Would that be for celiac, or allergies?
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

All I know is what my coworker told me and all I know is what she remembers her daughter telling her. That is why I thought I would ask here since the forum is overrun with the educated British who have an interest in nutrition.
