Coeliac Disease (CD) is an immune-mediated disease of the intestines that is triggered by the ingestion of gluten in genetically susceptible people. Gluten is the major protein component of wheat, rye, and barley.
Genetic predisposition does play a key role. Approximately 95% of patients with CD express HLA-DQ2, and the remaining patients are usually HLA-DQ8 positive.
If a patient has been on a gluten-free diet for 6-12 months, approximately 80% will lose their antibody response. After 5 years this increases to over 90%.
