Clinical Studies

There is a rapidly increasing amount of published evidence which underlines the clinical validity of fecal calprotectin in IBD diagnosis and monitoring. BÜHLMANN Laboratories offers the largest product portfolio in the market for calprotectin testing, which is supported by more than 60 clinical publications.  View the print version of the study summaries to learn more.


Diagnosis

Fecal calprotectin is used to pre-select patients with abdominal discomfort for further invasive diagnostic procedures.  It has been shown that fecal calprotectin is a suitable surrogate marker for the diagnosis of both, Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease.

Monitoring

Given the high prevalence of gastrointestinal disease, the value of calprotectin in IBD patient monitoring, and the downfalls of traditional treatment pathways, it is clear that frequent monitoring of calprotectin values in IBD patients is beneficial to their care.  See data from studies using BÜHLMANN assays to predict mucosal healing and to follow up IBD patients during therapy.
