US BioTek's advanced Celiac Antibody Panel is a quantitative analysis that measures for serum tissue transglutaminase (tTG) IgA & IgG, in addition to IgA and IgG antibodies specific for deamidated gliadin peptide (DGP).
These useful markers can help us to identify untreated celiac disease or monitor compliance with a gluten-free diet. Celiac disease, also known as gluten-sensitive enteropathy, or idiopathic sprue, is a hereditary response to gliadin, a protein present in wheat, rye, and barley grain. The immune reaction to the gluten protein sets off an inflammatory state that may cause some or more of the following symptoms.
