Device for Detecting IBD via Calprotectin Levels in Stool Being Evaluated in UK Study
Origin Sciences Ltd has initiated a performance study of its OriCol device in measuring calprotectin, a validated biomarker of inflammation, in the stool and rectal mucus of people with known or suspected cases of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). IBD is characterized by ongoing inflammation of the digestive tract, such as the colon and small intestine. The main symptoms are abdominal pain, weight loss, internal cramps/muscle spasms, vomiting, diarrhea, and rectal bleeding. IBD is commonly confirmed through biopsies, and calprotectin testing is useful for an initial determination of possible IBD. Testing for calprotectin is recommended by The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence<
