Celiac Disease

 

Celiac Disease (CD) is a human enteropathy caused by a permanent intolerance to gluten and, more specifically, to its protein fraction, called gliadin. In genetically-predisposed people, ingesting this protein induces a severe lesion of the intestinal mucosa characterized histologically by crypt hyperplasia with total or subtotal atrophy of the intestinal villi. Definitive diagnosis of celiac disease is based on the typical histological changes observed in intestinal biopsies. However, serologic tests such as detection of circulating anti-gliadin, anti-tTG and anti-endomysial antibodies represent cheaper, less invasive analysis methods to detect this disease.

We have also our CeliacStrip test, which detects the presence of some of the haplotypes associated wih celiac disease will be determined by the presence or absence of haplotypes that encode HLA-DQ2 (cis and trans) and HLA-DQ8. For more information, visit our molecular diagnostics section.

Stick CD1

One-step immunochromatographic test for detecting human anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies in serum.

Stick CD1 is an immunochromatographic test designed to detect antibodies (IgA/IgG/IgM) against human tissue transglutaminase (tTG), the main autoantigen recognized by the anti-endomysial antibodies.


Stick CD2

One-step immunochromatographic test for detecting IgA-type anti-gliadin and human anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies in serum.

Stick CD2 is an immunochromatographic test designed to detect, in serum, IgA-type antibodies against human tissue transglutaminase (tTG), the main autoantigen recognized by the anti-endomysial antibodies, and against gliadins. Its use is particularly indicated in the case of pediatric patients (up to 16 years old).


Simple CD1WB

One-step immunochromatographic test for detecting human anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies in blood.

Simple CD1WB is an immunochromatographic test designed to detect antibodies (IgA/IgG/IgM) in human blood against human tissue transglutaminase, the main autoantigen recognized by the anti-endomysial antibodies.


Simple CD2WB

One-step immunochromatographic test for detecting anti-gliadin and human anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies in blood.

Simple CD2WB is an immunochromatographic test designed to detect, in human blood, IgA-type antibodies against human tissue transglutaminase (tTG), the main autoantigen recognized by the anti-endomysial antibodies, and antibodies against gliadins. Its use is particularly indicated in the case of pediatric patients (up to 16 years old).
