Abstract:

Currently the only treatment for celiac disease is adherence to a strict gluten-free diet; however, compliance with this diet is complex and other alternatives are called for. Herein, we review recent developments in the design of novel therapeutic strategies to counteract the pathogenic effects of the interactions between gluten peptides and their specific biological targets.
