Moreover, further tests showed: presence of HLA DQ2.2 haplotype (both HLA DQ2.5 and DQ8 haplotypes were absent), negative TG2 antibodies in the IgG class and weakly positive TG2 antibodies in the IgA class 0.83 AU/mL (TG2 IgA <0.8 negative, TG2 IgA > 0.8 positive), which with a significant deficiency of immunoglobulins in this class, brought about a suspicion of CD.

Type 1 EATL is associated with celiac disease, and has HLA DQ2 and HLA DQ8 genotype (7).
We searched a thousand orientations for each drug to identify those that would fit within the DQ8 molecule binding groove."
Nevertheless, we cannot exclude that some NCGS patients, especially those positive for HLA-DQ2 and/or DQ8, may switch to classical CD in the course of the follow-up.
The lead candidate drug is an oral small molecule that starves the autoimmune process in type 1 diabetes by blocking DQ8 on specific immune cells.
HLA-DR alleles (HLA DR4 and DQ8) that are generally associated with autoimmune disease are increasingly frequent in CSU.6
The HLA DQ2 or DQ8, found in 30% to 40% of people, is necessary for the celiac disease autoimmune response, but recent genome-wide association studies have identified dozens of genetic risk loci, indicating that celiac disease is a complex, polygenetic immune-based disorder (Lebwohl et al., 2014; Trynka et al., 2011).
