Congratulations to Gastroenterology for NHMRC '10 of the best' 2015

The National Health and Medical Research Council has announced its pick for 2015 research in its "Ten of the Best".
Congratulations to Peter Gibson and his team for their research on the actual effect of gluten in IBS being chosen as one of the ten. The document quotes Prof Gibson as saying:
“We demonstrated that gluten, without FODMAPs, did not specifically induce symptoms in patients who believed they were gluten intolerant.
“Indeed, all patients experienced reduced gut symptoms in the run-in period when they, for the first time, restricted all FODMAPs in their diet.
“We found no changes in the physiology of the gut in response to gluten.”
