Fecal Immunochemical Test Found to Be an Accurate Predictor of Mucosal Status in Ulcerative Colitis Patients
Researchers at the Okayama University Graduate School of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Wakayama Medical University in Japan recently revealed that two assays, fecal immunochemical test (FIT) and fecal calprotectin (Fcal), can effectively predict the intestinal mucosa status in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

    Fecal Immunochemical Testing, performed annually, is an outstanding SCREENING alternative to colonoscopy, for IBD as well as CRC. The American College of Gastroenterology recommends FIT annually as an adjunct to colonoscopy (citing FIT plus colonoscopy detects CRC up to TWO YEARS EARLIER than colonoscopy alone) AND as the number one alternative to colonoscopy – and There is a Second Generation FIT test that is over the counter cleared and available without an Rx or doctors visit. No diet or medicine restrictions – and you interpret the results yourself, as you would an at home pregnancy test, in just five minutes. This is a no brainier and allows everyone 40+ to get screened – and gets the RIGHT people to colonoscopy.
