Translated title of the contribution: Coeliac disease and dilatative idiopathic cardiopathy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In an initial pilot study on 52 people (adults) with dilatative idiopathic cardiopathy, an illness in which anti-alpha-myosin autoantibodies appear, a diagnosis of coeliac disease was made (anti-transglutaminase antibodies, HLA DQ2-DQ8, positive biopsy) in 3 cases. A subsequent retrospective study was made on the serum of 239 patients, 28 family members with initial miocardic alterations, 393 healthy family members and 200 blood donors as a control group. 6 of the cardiopathic subjects (2%), 2 of the family members with initial cardiopathy (7%), 3 family members (0.7%), and none of the control group were found to test positive to anti-transglutaminase antibodies and HLA DQ2-DQ8.
