Is it true that the gene(s) for celiac disease can be passed in donated bone marrow to someone without the disease?

While there have been two case reports, it remains doubtful whether a bone marrow transplant from a person with celiac disease to a person who does not have it can led to the development of the disease, as in both cases the recipients already had the predisposing genes. June, 2017
