Abstract

Anti-parietal cell (APC) antibodies and pernicious anemia (PA) were evaluated in patients with type 1 diabetes (n=75) and in controls. A higher frequency of APC (13.3%) and PA (4%) was found in cases than in controls (p=0.003), associated with other autoimmune diseases (p=0.003), but not with insulin or PTPN22 polymorphisms.
