Endomysial antibodies (EMA), gliadin deamidated peptide (IgG and IgA) antibodies, tTG.
To assist in the diagnosis and monitoring of gluten-sensitive enteropathies that may damage intestinal mucosa.
Serum collected in a red-top tube. Some genetic test methods utilize samples of saliva or buccal swabs (cells collected from the inside lining of the cheek).
(Method: Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay [ELISA] for gliadin antibody and tissue transglutaminase antibody; indirect immunofluorescence for endomysial antibodies)
