Alessio Fasano, M.D., founded the Center for Celiac Research in 1996 to offer state-of-the art research, clinical expertise and teaching for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of gluten-related disorders, including celiac disease, wheat allergy and gluten sensitivity. In 2003 members of Dr. Fasano's research team established that celiac disease affects approximately 1 percent of the U.S. population, a significantly higher number than previously believed. Researchers from the Center also have recently identified molecular differences between celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, a newly defined condition on the spectrum of gluten-related disorders.
During research designed to develop a cholera vaccine, Dr. Fasano uncovered a toxin, zonula occludens, which causes diarrhea by loosening the tight junctions and allowing intestinal permeability. Subsequently, the Fasano lab identified the protein zonulin, which controls this process. Dr. Fasano's research since established the role of zonulin in the pathogenesis of celiac disease and type 1 diabetes. Safety and efficacy testing of a zonulin inhibitor, Larazotide acetate, has been completed and plans are underway for Phase III clinical trials of the compound.
Dr. Fasano's lab is currently investigating the composition and changes in the gastrointestinal microbiota to help determine why some individuals with an inherited predisposition to celiac disease develop clinical disease while others do not. His lab is also investigating the role of the timing of gluten introduction to infants in the development of celiac disease and working to uncover a biomarker and to develop a diagnostic tool for gluten sensitivity. In addition, the Center is pursuing possible links between gluten-related disorders and conditions such as schizophrenia and Autism Spectrum Disorder in certain subgroups of patients.
