How Slow Do Objective Markers of Celiac Change After Treatment?

In a recent study (D Gidrewicz et al. JPGN 2017; 64: 362-7) with 228 consecutive, newly diagnosed children with biopsy-proven celiac disease, the authors followed improvement in serology.  Patients were divided into tertiles based on the degree of TTG IgA/EMA abnormalities. For example, Group A had the most abnormal serology: TTG >10 times ULN and EMA ≥1:80.

My take: This data confirms the fact that it takes a long time for resolution of celiac serology, particularly in those with the most severe disease.
