Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of the effect of CCX282-B compared to placebo on the villous height/crypt depth ratio of small intestinal biopsy specimens taken from subjects with celiac disease, before and after gluten exposure. [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of CCX282-B compared to placebo on small intestinal mucosal inflammation before and after gluten exposure [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluation of CCX282-B compared to placebo on gluten-induced celiac-type serology before and after gluten exposure [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluation of CCX282-B compared to placebo on symptom scores before and after gluten exposure [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
