- - Detection of antibodies against endomysium and gliadin.
- - Indications: gluten-sensitive enteropathy (celiac disease, non-tropical sprue), Duhring's herpetiform dermatitis.
- - Initial dilution 1 : 10; conjugate class anti-human IgA or IgG, FITC-labelled.
- - Autoantibodies
against endomysium react with many types of tissue, e.g. primate
oesophagus. The most suitable substrate, however, is primate liver: in
the case of a positive sample, filamentous linings of the intralobular
- - With the gliadin (GAF-3X)-coated BIOCHIP, antibodies against gliadin can be analyzed in one and the same test procedure.
- - Both
anti-endomysium antibodies and antibodies against gliadin (class IgA)
are reliable serological markers for an active gluten-sensitive
enteropathy. Therefore, their determination can in many cases replace
endoscopy and biopsy.
