Coeliac disease (CD) is a chronic autoimmune enteropathy triggered by gluten and related prolamines in genetically predisposed individuals. Although CD is a polygenic disease, there is a strong association with genes of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) region. Most patients present the HLA-DQ2 heterodimer, specifically the DQ2.5 isoform, which is present in around 90-96% of patients of European ancestry.
