Non-invasive Approach: New Serum Parameters Show Celiac Disease and RCDI Different from RCDII and EATL

Celiac.com 01/04/2013 - Currently, doctors must still use invasive techniques to distinguish between uncomplicated and complicated forms of celiac disease.

CC--Horia_VarlanIn an effort to find a non-invasive approach to the issue, a research team recently set out to investigate the potential use of novel serum parameters, including IL-6, IL-8, IL-17, IL-22, sCD25, sCD27, granzyme-B, sMICA and sCTLA-4 in patients diagnosed with active CD, CD on a GFD, Refractory coeliac disease (RCD) type I and II, and enteropathy associated T-cell lymphoma (EATL).

The research team included Greetje J. Tack, Roy L. van Wanrooij, B. Mary Von Blomberg, Hedayat Amini, Veerle M. Coupe, Petra Bonnet, Chris J. Mulder and Marco W. Schreurs.

Their investigation revealed elevated levels of the pro-inflammatory IL-8, IL-17 and sCD25 in both active celiac disease and in refractory celiac disease, types I and II.

They also found that RCDII patients displayed higher serum levels of soluble granzyme-B and IL-6 in comparison to active celiac disease patients. Furthermore, EATL patients showed higher levels of IL-6 as compared to all other groups. Otherwise, the team found no differences between RCDI and active CD or RCDII.

These novel serum parameters show distinct immunological differences in RCDII and EATL, compared with uncomplicated celiac disease and RCDI.

From the Chicago Celiac Disease Center which is one of the premier celiac disease research & treatment centers in the world: Are you scheduled for a biopsy? Are you eating gluten? Any changes in your diet can affect the accuracy of your biopsy result...

My panel was the same as yours........all tests positive by large numbers so you can consider yourself a Celiac. Are you very symptomatic? I will add that I did not eat Whole Foods exclusively when healing. I needed to gain weight badly so ate gluten-free bread and a few other things that ...

My allergist did suggest I cut out gluten right away, but I?ll call the GI tomorrow and discuss that. Thank you!

He only did 2 of the full panel & you are positive on one of them, the DGP IgG. It only takes one positive to move on to an endoscopy. Here's the full celiac serum panel: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) Ig...

That's about the most definitive positive across the board that I've ever seen. You're way positive on every one. Keep eating gluten every single day until the endoscopy! You don't have to eat a ton, 1 or 2 slices of gluten bread per day will do it. Orrrrrrrrrrr you could take this time to pig ou...
