OBJECTIVE:There are no studies on the prevalence of celiac disease (CD) in either Brazil or, as far as we know, South America. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of CD in healthy blood donors in the city of Brasilia, Brazil.METHODS:Sera were obtained, independently of age and gender, from an unselected group of 2045 blood donors attending the Hematological Center of Brasilia. An IgG antigliadin antibody (AGA) test was used as a first-level screening step, followed by IgA-AGA…

Prevalence of celiac disease in Tunisian blood donors.

Prevalence of celiac disease in an urban area of Brazil with predominantly European ancestry.

TLDR
Among apparently healthy blood donors, the prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was approximately 1:417, similar to that seen in European countries.

Serological and Clinical Follow-Up of Relatives of Celiac Disease Patients from Southern Brazil

TLDR
The results emphasize the familial risk to develop CD and the value of serological screening as an instrument for identifying this disease.

Celiac Disease Could be a Frequent Disease in Mexico: Prevalence of Tissue Transglutaminase Antibody in Healthy Blood Donors

TLDR
On the basis of a well-recognized serologic screening method performed to blood donor samples, it is demonstrated an unexpectedly high prevalence of tTGA positivity (2.6%) in the adult Mexican Mestizo population, which could be higher or similar to that observed in other countries.

Screening of Tissue Transglutaminase Antibody in Healthy Blood Donors for Celiac Disease Screening in the Turkish Population

TLDR
This study shows that the prevalence of CD in the Turkish population is relatively high in comparison to that in the Western world.

Prevalence of Coeliac Disease: Unexplained Age-related Variation in the Same Population

TLDR
This work supports previous findings showing that CD is not a rare disorder in Brazil and that there is an unexplained difference in the prevalence of CD between adults and children.

Prevalence of coeliac disease: unexplained age-related variation in the same population.

TLDR
This work supports previous findings showing that CD is not a rare disorder in Brazil and that there is an unexplained difference in the prevalence of CD between adults and children.

Prevalence of celiac disease among blood donors in SÃO PAULO – the most populated city in Brazil

TLDR
The prevalence of adults with undiagnosed celiac disease among blood donors of São Paulo by collecting information on the ancestry of the population studied is at least 1:286 among supposedly healthy blood bank volunteers.

Prevalence of celiac disease in argentina: screening of an adult population in the La Plata area

TLDR
The screening protocol showed a very high prevalence of celiac disease for an urban area of Argentina that is ethnically similar to 90% of the general population of the country, and the heterogeneous clinical picture of new patients showed predominance of asymptomatic cases.

Decreased prevalence of celiac disease among Brazilian elderly.

TLDR
The prevalence of celiac disease in a group of Brazilian individuals over 60 years of age and compare it with the previously known prevalence in a pediatric group living in the same geographical area was compared with that observed for the group of children younger than 15 years who took part in a previous CD prevalence screening study.

Celiac disease risk in the USA: high prevalence of antiendomysium antibodies in healthy blood donors.

TLDR
The prevalence of increased AEA levels in healthy blood donors in the USA is 1:250, similar to that reported in countries in Europe, where subsequent small-intestinal biopsies have confirmed CD in all those with AEA positivity.

The coeliac iceberg in Italy. A multicentre antigliadin antibodies screening for coeliac disease in school‐age subjects

TLDR
These findings confirm that, in Italy, CD is one of the most common chronic disorders showing a wide and heterogeneous clinical spectrum and most CD cases remain undiagnosed unless actively searched.

TLDR
An ELIS A is developed for the detection of class‐specific antigliadin antibodies (AGA), with which sera from a large population of apparently healthy blood donors was analysed, and the positive predictive value (+PV) was found to be very low.

Antigliadin and antiendomysium antibody determination for coeliac disease.

TLDR
Patients who are young at diagnosis of coeliac disease and without a morphological relapse were less than 2 years old at diagnosis so it is concluded that patients who areYoung at diagnosis should be challenged.

Preliminary results from follow‐up of a large‐scale population survey of antibodies to gliadin, reticulin and endomysium

TLDR
Coeliac disease is more prevalent than previous estimations and was found to be at least 1 in 152.

High incidence and prevalence of adult coeliac disease. Augmented diagnostic approach.

TLDR
The aim was to detect coeliac disease patients with such atypical or no symptoms as well as those with typical features, and gave a coeliasis prevalence similar to that found in population screening studies.

New perspectives of the pathogenesis of coeliac disease: evolution of a working clinical definition

TLDR
Clinically, silent coeliac disease is now being increasingly recognized, for example in asymptomatic people in whom jejunal biopsy has been performed as part of a family study or in screening of blood donors.
