Faecal calprotectin [FC] is a valid and non-invasive marker of mucosal inflammation. It is widely used both in clinical trials and in daily clinical practice for patients with inflammatory bowel diseases, but currently no accepted standardization for FC testing is available. Our primary aim here was to provide a clinician's guide containing all the practical information on FC measurement in order to avoid any confounding factors, to minimize intra- and inter-individual variability in dosage, and to ensure a better and adequate interpretation of the results.

Abstract

Faecal calprotectin [FC] is a valid and non-invasive marker of mucosal inflammation. It is widely used both in clinical trials and in daily clinical practice for patients with inflammatory bowel diseases, but currently no accepted standardization for FC testing is available. Our primary aim here was to provide a clinician's guide containing all the practical information on FC measurement in order to avoid any confounding factors, to minimize intra- and inter-individual variability in dosage, and to ensure a better and adequate interpretation of the results.
