    120 Possible Causes for HLA DQ2 in USA

    • Celiac Disease

      What is the meaning of HLA DQ2/DQ8?[] Genetic susceptibility defines people who possess the gene pair encoding the major histocompatibility complex class II HLA DQ2 or DQ8.[] Finally, CD is likely to be rare in Japan, Indonesia, Korea, the Philippines and many smaller Pacific islands because of low wheat consumption and a low frequency of HLA-DQ2[]

    • Childhood Celiac Disease

      HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8 Genes 95% of people with celiac disease have either or both of the HLA-DQ2 or HLA-DQ8 genes.[] HLA-DQ2-restricted T-cell recognition of gluten-derived peptides in celiac disease.[] Methods We performed a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled dietary-intervention study involving 944 children who were positive for HLA-DQ2 or HLA-DQ8[]

    • Dyspepsia

      Moreover, most patients in this study with clinically-confirmed enteropathy (84.1%) had the genetic locus for celiac disease susceptibility (HLA DQ2 or -DQ8), indicating the[] […] clinically verified enteropathy they performed typical blood tests for celiac disease (e.g. anti-tissue transglutiminase IgA antibodies), as well as genetic testing for the HLA-DQ2[] […] stool frequency and gastrointestinal symptom score returned to normal values in 60% of diarrhea predominant IBS patients who were positive and in 12% who were negative for HLA-DQ2[]

    • Myasthenia Gravis

      [] In white persons, for instance, the condition is linked to human leukocyte antigen (HLA)–DR3, HLA-DQ2, and HLA - B8 , [10] whereas the linkage is to[]

    • Celiac Disease with Diffuse Intestinal Ulceration

      HLA DQ typing Genetic testing for HLA DQ2/8 is valuable, but only as an exclusionary test.[] Past genetic testing revealed that this patient carries the HLA-DQ2 allele.[] DQ2 or DQ8 expression, dermatitis herpetiformis, hyposplenism Monomorphic variant NOT associated with celiac disease, may represent a distinct entity EATL in situ: refractory[]

    • Dermatitis Herpetiformis

      It is most common in patients of northern European ancestry, and is associated with the HLA-DQ2 haplotype along with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.[] Other tests HLA haplotype, a set of DNA variations, testing may reveal HLA-DQ2 or HLA-DQ8.[]

    • Alcoholic Cerebellar Degeneration

      The HLA DQ2 has also been seen in a number of other autoimmune diseases including primary autoimmune cerebellar ataxia.[] Not surprisingly, this may trigger a breakdown in immune tolerance and autoimmune responses in patients harbouring genetic susceptibility (HLA DQ2/DQ8).[] Up to 90% of patients with celiac disease are HLA DQ2, the remaining have DQ8 or DQ1.[]

    • Chronic Diarrhea with Villous Atrophy

      In this case, there was a high prevalence of patients with two copies of HLA-DQ2 in both groups, but no relationship between the severity of villous atrophy and HLA-DQ2 homozygosity[] […] olmesartan-associated sprue-like enteropathy is uncertain, the long latency before onset of symptoms, findings of lymphocytic or collagenous colitis, and high association with HLA-DQ2[] Genetic susceptibility defines people who possess the gene pair encoding the major histocompatibility complex class II HLA DQ2 or DQ8.[]

    • Collagenous Sprue

      […] a) Refer the patient for a dietary review b) Request a clonal analysis of the intraepithelial lymphocytes c) Refer for HLA DQ2/DQ8 testing d) Refer the patient for capsule[] None of the patients had ever shown celiac-specific antibodies , and all were negative for HLA-DQ2 and HLA -DQ8 phenotype.[]

    • Celiac Disease, Epilepsy and Cerebral Calcification Syndrome

      Moreover, CEC, as well as CD, is associated with HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8 phenotype and genotype.[] Almost all people (95%) with coeliac disease have either the variant HLA-DQ2 (major) allele or the HLA-DQ8 (minor) allele.[] It is associated with the HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8 genes.[]
