Celiac disease is a life-long condition in which ingestion of gluten leads to chronic inflammation and damage of the small intestinal mucosa. Tissue transglutaminase has been identified as the major autoantigen in celiac disease. IgA antibodies against tTG are highly disease specific serological markers for celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis.
