Celiac Antibody Profile. Celiac disease is a permanent intolerance to gluten found in wheat, rye and barley.

The immune reaction to the gluten protein in the gut sets off an inflammatory state that may cause diarrhea, abdominal cramping, distension, flatulence, weight loss, fatigue and malaise. Untreated CD may lead to vitamin and mineral deficiencies, osteoporosis, arthralgias, dermatitis herpetiformis, depression, irritability and impaired scholastic performance in children.

ELISA Celiac Antibody Panel is a semi-quantitative analysis of serum Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase IgA (tTg IgA), in addition to IgG and IgA antibodies specific for gliadin.

Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase IgA (tTg IgA) is a highly sensitive (about 98%) and specific (>95%) marker for untreated celiac disease in an IgA competent individual.

Anti-Gliadin IgA and Anti-Gliadin IgG are useful markers to monitor compliance to a gluten-free diet.
