BioLineRx Advances its Fight Against Celiac Disease and Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

In an exciting announcement by the company early this month, BioLineRx appears to be moving one step closer to helping those suffering from Celiac disease. Over 1% of the global population suffers from this disease, although the exact cause of celiac disease is unknown. When people with celiac disease eat foods or use products that contain gluten (which is found in wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats), their immune system reacts by damaging the villi, which cover the lining of the intestines and help absorb nutrients. This damage affects the ability to absorb nutrients properly and a person becomes malnourished no matter how much they eat.
