Table 1 AGA IgG in NCGS and CD related to compliance to the GFD and clinical picture

From: Effect of gluten free diet on immune response to gliadin in patients with non-celiac gluten sensitivity

44 NCGS patients (all with AGA IgG when untreated) after 6-months-GFD Good response to GFD 39 /44 Mild response to GFD 5/44
Compliance AGA IgG + AGA IgG- AGA IgG + AGA IgG-
Strict 41/44 0 38 1 2
Low 3/44 0 1 2 0
40 CD patients (all with AGA IgG on a gluten containing diet) after 6-months-GFD Good response to GFD 30/40 Mild response to GFD 10/40
Compliance AGA IgG+ AGA IgG- AGA IgG + AGA IgG-
Strict 32/40 11 14 2 5
Low 8/40 2 3 1 2
  1. AGA IgG in NCGS patients with low compliance vs. AGA IgG in NCGS patients with strict compliance, P = 0.009; AGA IgG in NCGS patients with mild response to GFD vs IgG AGA in NCGS patients with good response to GFD. NCGS, P = 0.00075. Two tailed Fisher’s exact test.
  2. AGA IgG in CD patients with low compliance vs. AGA IgG in CD patients with strict compliance, P = NS; AGA IgG in CD patients with mild response to GFD vs AGA IgG in CD patients with good response to GFD, P = NS. Two tailed Fisher’s exact test.
