Diagnostic Relevance

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is diagnosed via the detection of faecal calprotectin. Calprotectin, mainly located in cytoplasmic neutrophil granulocytes, plays a major role in immune response following its releases after activation of neutrophils. The released calprotectin act as markers of inflammation evident by their presence in the serum, body fluids and faeces; thus acting as alternative marker of neutrophil entry into the intestinal lumen: In this way, organically induced intestinal diseases can be effectively differentiated from functional intestinal disorders like irritable bowel syndrome.
