Mayo Clinic is a leading center for research on celiac disease. A Mayo study found that the incidence of celiac disease is rising and that undiagnosed celiac disease is associated with a nearly fourfold increased risk of death. Mayo researchers are working to improve methods of diagnosis and treatment. Specific efforts focus on the role of genetics in predicting celiac disease, environmental factors that can trigger the disease and new treatments for refractory celiac disease.
