  • Seven TCCs isolated from four CD patients were tested for recognition of chymotrypsin-digested, tTG-treated gliadins. Gliadin from the wheat variety Kadett was used as a positive control (+). Results are given as the stimulation index that was calculated by dividing the response to antigen by the response to PBS control. Similar results were also obtained when pepsin-digested recombinant gliadins treated with acid/heat were used.
