  • Xeliac Test Professional - cod. 9126 1 test
  • Xeliac Test Professional - cod. 9127 25 tests 

Carefully read the instructions for use before starting the test.

Coeliac disease (CD) is a serious, lifelong, gastrointestinal disorder that can cause a wide spectrum of clinical symptoms of diarrhea, abdominal distension, weight loss, malnutrition and skin disorders (dermatitis herpetiformis) due to permanent intolerance to gluten, a complex mixture of storage proteins found in wheat, barley and rye.

Studies have found the prevalence of CD to be highly variable from country to country and the true prevalence has been difficult to ascertain. If only the clinical criteria are used the incidence of CD is much lower compared with incidence established by serological methods. Using serological methods of diagnosis, the incidence of CD in the general population is approximately 1 in 150.

The enzyme tissue-transglutaminase (tTG) has been identified as the endomysial antigen in CD. A strong indication of CD is the presence of antibodies specific for the tTG.

Xeliac Test Professional is a rapid immunochromatographic test that detects anti-tTG IgA and IgG antibodies from a blood sample. If the sample contains anti-tTG antibodies, they will bind to the labelled-tTG and the resulting complex will be detected by the test line containing recombinant tissue-transglutaminase and will form a visible red/pink test line. The test also contains an integrated control system and the presence of a blue control line confirms the proper functioning of the test.
