Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Following a gluten-free diet is difficult. Eating small amounts of gluten may be common. Gluten may cause a wide range of symptoms, or no symptoms at all. Thus, there is not always a 'feedback loop' to alert to accidental gluten exposure. Nevertheless, these "silent" gluten exposures may interfere with recovery and healing of the intestine. New tools are available to test for fragments of gluten
