Celiac Antibody Profile. Celiac disease is a permanent intolerance to gluten found in wheat, rye and barley. Semi-quantitative Assay that includes: Tissue Transglutaminase (tTg) IgA& IgG Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA & IgG
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.

About the Manufacturer
US Bio Food Allergy Specialists
This lab holds more than 30 years of medical testing experience and are pioneers in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) methodology.
Fully automated robotic systems form the framework of our state-of-the-art, high-performance ELISA platform that’s built on the foundational work of a world class team of scientists and technicians. For precision, every analyte tested for immunoassay is run in complete duplicate resulting in consistently reproducible results.
Fully licensed and accredited, their success comes from our strong commitment and dedication to assuring quality: cornerstones that guarantee your peace of mind with our sound testing solutions.
Allergic and other hypersensitivity reactions to foods and aeroallergens are characterized by elevated allergen-specific antibody levels in the affected individual's blood. Research indicates that these types of reactions are implicated in a number of health problems. Through our Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) methodology we provide a useful tool for practitioners to assess their patients' allergies and sensitivities to a variety of common allergens.
