Fecal calprotectin as a marker of intestinal inflammation in children

The PhiCal Test is very promising for differentiating between functional abdominal pain and IBD in school-aged children. Since the test is simple and non-invasive, many endoscopies can be avoided; this is of special importance in children in whom general anaesthesia will be necessary.

"Fecal calprotectin correlates closely with the best invasive measures of colonic and small bowel inflammation in childhood inflammatory bowel disease. As a sensitive objective measure of bowel inflammation that is risk-free and non-invasive, fecal calprotectin lends itself particularly to the monitoring of and assessment of therapeutic interventions in children with inflammatory bowel disease".
