ABSTRACT: Celiac disease (CD) patients lacking both human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DQ2.5 in cis (DQA1*05:01, -DQB1*02:01) or trans (DQA1*05:05, -DQB1*02:02) configuration and HLA-DQ8 (DQA1*03:01, -DQB1*03:02) are considered to be rare. Therefore, absence of these genotypes is commonly used to exclude the diagnosis of CD. To investigate whether this approach is justified, ...
