The anti-endothelium autoantibody (IgA-EmA) is a specific IgA antibody produced in patients with glucan enteropathy, and its role in the pathogenesis is to be further studied. Anti-endothelium autoantibodies are classic markers for the diagnosis of celiac disease. The test is characterized by high specificity (generally >95%). Therefore, patients with positive anti-endometrial autoantibodies often need to be diagnosed by small bowel biopsy. diagnosis. After a strict gluten-free diet, the anti-endometrial autoantibody titer of patients with celiac disease can return to normal. Therefore, anti-endometrial autoantibody titers were also used to test the clinical efficacy of the gluten diet.

Clinical significance

Anti-endothelium autoantibodies are classic markers for the diagnosis of celiac disease. The test is characterized by high specificity (generally >95%). Therefore, patients with positive anti-endometrial autoantibodies often need to be diagnosed by small bowel biopsy. diagnosis.

After a strict gluten-free diet, the anti-endometrial autoantibody titer of patients with celiac disease can return to normal. Therefore, anti-endometrial autoantibody titers were also used to test the clinical efficacy of the gluten diet.

Precautions

It is worth noting that patients with celiac disease are often associated with selective IgA deficiency, so IgG anti-endometrial autoantibodies should be measured simultaneously in these patients to avoid missed diagnosis.

Inspection process

The same immunofluorescence method (IFA).

Not suitable for the crowd

There are no taboos.

Adverse reactions and risks

There are no related complications and hazards.
