Table 5 Risk of developing concomitant autoimmune diseases in patients with celiac disease with respect to the presence of anti-MICA autoantibodies

From: Autoantibodies against MHC class I polypeptide-related sequence A are associated with increased risk of concomitant autoimmune diseases in celiac patients

   Celiac disease only Celiac disease with autoimmune disease
   n = 325 n = 58
