IgA transglutaminase levels in children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.

Ann Paediatr Rheumatol 2012 ;1(1):31-35

Department of Pediatrics, UT Southwestern Medical Center ; Department of Rheumatology, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, Dallas, TX ; Department of Pediatrics, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL.

Objectives: Several studies have indicated that adult patients with spondyloarthritis (SpA) have elevated levels of antibodies associated with celiac disease (CD). This has not been studied in children, and none of the studies corrected for total IgA levels.

Methods: We measured total IgA and IgA against tissue transglutaminase (TTG) levels in 42 children with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), of whom 11 had SpA, along with 10 non-inflammatory control subjects. Read More
