The celiac/coeliac disease is caused by the gliadin fraction of wheat gluten and similar proteins of rye and barley. The disease is manly manifested as chronic digestion insufficiency in children or young adults. In addition, patients with celiac disease have a greatly increased risk of developing malignant T-cell lymphoma of the small bowel, as T-cell lymphoma was found in 6 of 10 patients with coeliac sprue. Early diagnosis of celiac disease is important, because there is evidence that a gluten-free diet might help to prevent complications and malignancies (including intestinal lymphoma).
The measurement of anti-gliadin-sIgA-antibodies may be useful as a screening criterion before jejunal biopsy, the "Gold Standard", and for the monitoring of the gluten-free diet treatment.
