A patent was filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office in 2007 by four scientists for an enzyme treatment of “foodstuffs” for Celiac sprue. The patent was finally awarded March 25th , 2011 to Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA. Patent #7,910,541, developed by four co-inventors, is listed as an “enzyme treatment of foodstuffs for Celiac sprue.” The co-inventors are Felix Hausch, Langenselbold, Germany, Gary Gray, Stanford, Calif., Lu Shan, Houston, and Chaitan Khosla, Palo Alto, Calif.
Could this be the long awaited Celiac cure or miracle pill for gluten intolerance? I’m trying to find more information on the research this group did and will post info when I find it. Stay tuned…this could get exciting.
