We evaluated the presence of IgA and IgG celiac disease-related antibodies in a sample of 217 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and in a sample of 200 controls not affected by neurological disorders. None of the 217 patients with MS presented IgG and IgA anti-gliadin, anti-endomysial antibodies, anti-tissue transglutaminase and anti-reticulin, whereas only one of the selected controls presented specific antibodies; this subject resulted to be effectively affected by celiac disease. Our data did not show an increased frequency of celiac disease among patients with MS.
