The serum anti-transglutaminase antibodies are the immunological markers for coeliac disease diagnosis. These autoantibodies are synthesized by B-lymphocytes at the intestinal level and their presence in the form of intestinal deposits is a constant feature in the different clinical entities in which coeliac disease is classified: classical, silent, and potential. These intestinal autoantibodies are the first gluten dependent inflammatory markers and they appear before both the intestinal damage and the serum anti-transglutaminase antibodies. The anti-transglutaminase deposits should be looked for to confirm or exclude the diagnosis of coeliac disease when the clinical and immunological features are incomplete or in asymptomatic at risk patients.

Abstract

The serum anti-transglutaminase antibodies are the immunological markers for coeliac disease diagnosis. These autoantibodies are synthesized by B-lymphocytes at the intestinal level and their presence in the form of intestinal deposits is a constant feature in the different clinical entities in which coeliac disease is classified: classical, silent, and potential. These intestinal autoantibodies are the first gluten dependent inflammatory markers and they appear before both the intestinal damage and the serum anti-transglutaminase antibodies. The anti-transglutaminase deposits should be looked for to confirm or exclude the diagnosis of coeliac disease when the clinical and immunological features are incomplete or in asymptomatic at risk patients.
