I saw that study too, wembles, and found it interesting. Dr. Rodney Ford believes that the value of the DGP lies in predicting who will go on to develop celiac disease; i.e., that it picks it up much earlier than the tTG which is measuring damage which is already present, whereas the DGP picks up early celiac before the villi become involved. The study does not evaluate how many of the patients showed inflammation and beginning signs of celiac - Marsh 1 and Marsh 2 on the scale; remember you have to be Marsh 3 to be diagnosed as celiac, i.e., with already some villous atrophy. Dr. Ford has had patients with positive DGP and negative biopsy who, upon retesting a year or two later, have become positive.
