The prevalence of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) is rapidly increasing in the world. Fecal calprotectin is a sensitive marker of intestinal inflammation. Calprotectin is an immunomodulatory and antimicrobial protein that is primarily secreted by neutrophils. Its level is low in healthy feces, while IBD patients have elevated fecal calprotectin concentrations due to neutrophil degranulation and leakage from damaged mucosa.
PTZ Calprotectin is an easy-to-use ELISA test for the diagnosis of intestinal inflammation associated with IBD, including Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis. The test detects fecal calprotectin, which is a stable and sensitive indicator of IBD.
PTZ Calprotectin ELISA kit can distinguish IBD from non-inflammatory conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), while avoiding uncomfortable and invasive examinations. Calprotectin ELISA Kit is also useful for monitoring disease activity over time, and evaluating patients treatment responses.
