- DGP, IgA
Detection of gliadin antibodies aids in the diagnosis and monitoring of certain gluten-sensitive enteropathies, such as celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis
Enzyme immunoassay (EIA)
A negative IgA result in an untreated patient does not rule out gluten-sensitive enteropathies, especially when associated with IgG gliadin antibodies. This can be explained by selective IgA deficiency, a relatively frequent finding in celiac disease. False-positives are possible as other gastrointestinal disorders are known to induce circulating antigliadin antibody, mainly Crohn disease, food protein intolerance, and postinfection malabsorption.
Specimen should be free of bacterial contamination, hemolysis, and lipemia.
Causes for Rejection
Hemolysis; lipemia; gross bacterial contamination
