Participants sought: Investigating serum zonulin levels in patients with gastrointestinal dysfunction


Healthy Volunteers Needed

We are interested in detecting a protein involved in controlling gut leakiness in patients with gastrointestinal disorders and in healthy individuals. This will help us determine if the protein is a useful marker of disease

As part of this research, volunteers will:

  • Refrain from consuming gluten for 3 hours
  • Complete a short health survey
  • Have 30ml (2 Tbsp) of blood taken
    • Are between the ages of 18 and 35
    • Are in good health with a healthy immune system
    • Have no known gastrointestinal conditions, autoimmune disorders, kidney disease, diabetes, or active infection
    • Do not believe that you have a sensitivity to gluten and are not on a gluten-free diet
    • Are living in Melbourne, Australia
