The Gut Immunology is a gastrointestinal stool test that evaluates immunological imbalance specific to gastrointestinal tract inflammatory disease activity. Gastrointestinal inflammation is reported through the biomarkers Calprotectin and Eosinophil Protein X.
Calprotectin is the non-invasive gold standard for assessment of gastrointestinal inflammation – and as such, is a useful clinical tool for identifying patients who warrant further GI evaluation. Calprotectin is effective in distinguishing Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and gastrointestinal neoplasm.
Eosinophil Protein X reflects IgE-mediated inflammation. Fecal EPX elevations can be associated with several conditions including IBD, IgE-mediated food allergies, parasite or worm infections and collagenous colitis.
