Table 1 Prevalence (%) of antibodies in patients and in controls

From: Primary biliary cirrhosis and autoimmune cholangitis are not associated with coeliac disease in Crete

  PBC n = 62 (%) AIC n = 17(%) BD n = 100 CD n = 18
IgA-AGA 12(19)* 6 (35)* 1 18
IgG-AGA 3(5) - 2 16
Any AGA 13 (21)* 6 (35)* 3 18
Both AGAs 2(3) - 1 16
IgA-ARA - - - 18
IgA-EMA - - - 18
IgA-tTG 6(10)* 3(18)* - 18
IgA-tTG and AGAs 2(3) 2 (12)* - 18
  1. n = number of patients; * = where p less than 0.05, PBC = primary biliary cirrhosis; AIC = autoimmune cholangitis; CD = coeliac disease; BD = blood donors; IgA-AGA = anti-gliadin antibodies, IgA class; IgG-AGA = anti-gliadin antibodies, IgG class; AGAs = anti-gliadin antibodies; IgA-ARA = IgA class anti-reticulin antibodies, RI type; IgA-EMA = anti-endomysial antibodies, IgA class; IgA-tTG = antibodies to tissue transglutaminase, IgA class
