BACKGROUND Celiac disease (CD) is an immune-mediated enteropathic condition triggered in genetically susceptible individuals by the ingestion of gluten. Although common in Europe, CD is thought to be rare in the United States, where there are no large epidemiologic studies of its prevalence. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of CD in at-risk and not-at-risk groups in the United States. METHODS Serum antigliadin antibodies and anti-endomysial antibodies (EMA) were measured… Expand

Screening for Celiac Disease in a Pediatric Primary Care Setting
TLDR
The results suggest that the prevalence of CD in children approximates that of US adults and that the true prevalence in children without known risk factors may be increasing. Expand

TLDR
CD is more common in first-degree relatives than previously reported in the United States, with siblings having the greatest risk and being a sibling being high-risk factors for CD. Expand
[Increased prevalence of celiac disease in first and second-grade relatives. A report of a family with 19 studied members].
TLDR
It is seen that family studies are needed every time a patient is diagnosed with celiac disease; these studies should include both first- and second-degree relatives, given the high prevalence encountered and the fact that these tests are relatively straighforward to perform. Expand
The prevalence of celiac disease in average-risk and at-risk Western European populations: a systematic review.
TLDR
Clinicians in a variety of specialties should have a high index of suspicion for the diagnosis of CD and in particular need to pay close attention to the identified high-risk groups. Expand
IgA anti-transglutaminase antibodies as a tool for screening atypical forms of coeliac disease in a French at-risk paediatric population
TLDR
Children displaying minimal symptoms frequently associated with coeliac disease and children with DM1 should be systematically screened for tTG Abs, which was detected in 2.6% of children with symptoms associated with CD, such as digestive signs and growth failure. Expand
Prevalence of Celiac Disease Among First-degree Relatives of Patients With Celiac Disease
TLDR
The present study identified 23 undiagnosed cases of celiac disease among 484 first-degree relatives of 195 patients with Celiac disease, confirming the high prevalence (4.8%) of the disease in this specific group. Expand
[Celiac disease: diagnosis prevalence in a community hospital].
TLDR
In a primary care HMO setting, using secondary databases from EMR, the authors found 1 case of celiac disease every 470 affiliates, giving a prevalence of 0.22%, which could be considered relatively high. Expand
Screening for Celiac Disease in a North American Population: Sequential Serology and Gastrointestinal Symptoms
TLDR
Serologic testing can readily detect this disease in a general population of a geographically isolated area and screening for celiac disease was widely accepted in this preventative health-care setting. Expand
Utility of the New ESPGHAN Criteria for the Diagnosis of Celiac Disease in At-risk Groups
TLDR
Strong positive RBC-TG2ab showed good accuracy and excellent correlation with the other antibodies and celiac-type human leukocyte antigen, and the diagnosis of celiac disease was established in 94% of both children and adults. Expand
Celiac disease in children.
TLDR
European guidelines recently proposed to reconsider the need for systematic endoscopy in typical symptomatic forms with high level of anti-transglutaminase and positive anti-endomysium, and currently, the gluten-free diet remains the only effective treatment for celiac disease. Expand

TLDR
CD is not rare in the United States and may be as common as in Europe, and AGA and EMA are useful for identifying patients who should undergo a small intestinal biopsy. Expand

TLDR
The data show for the first time that the prevalence of autoimmune disorders in celiac disease is related to the duration of exposure to gluten. Expand
Prevalence of celiac disease among blood donors in Brazil
TLDR
The preliminary results support the view that CD is not a rare disease in Brazil, with a prevalence of undiagnosed CD of 1:681 among apparently healthy blood donors. Expand

TLDR
The study indicates a prevalence of latent coeliac disease in apparently healthy Norwegian individuals of 1:340 among asymptomatic and presumably healthy people, in keeping with studies from other countries. Expand

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. Expand
Current approaches to diagnosis and treatment of celiac disease: an evolving spectrum.
TLDR
The current gold standard for the diagnosis of CD remains histologic confirmation of the intestinal damage in serologically positive individuals, and the keystone treatment of CD patients is a lifelong elimination diet in which food products containing gluten are avoided. Expand
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. Expand
Undiagnosed coeliac disease is common in Finnish adults.
TLDR
Undiagnosed coeliac disease is common in the adult population in Finland; in this study the prevalence was 1 in 130; Screening for coelcream disease is recommended on minor suspicion. Expand
[Prevalence of celiac disease in patients with chronic diarrhea].
TLDR
Investigation of biopsy materials of the small intestine and levels of antibodies to alpha-gliadin of class A immunoglobulins (IgA) and tissue transglutaminase found that patients with the latent form of the disease prevail among patients with celiac disease. Expand
Characteristics of adult celiac disease in the USA: results of a national survey
TLDR
Patients with celiac disease in the United States have a long duration of symptoms and consider their diagnosis delayed, and improved quality of life after diagnosis is common, with an increased risk of developing small intestine malignancies. Expand
