In addition to the standard test, it detects occult blood, measures fecal calprotectin and lactoferrin.
In this version, the Gut screening as well as detecting what was investigated in the Gut Normal - checks, counts and evaluation of the protective bacterial flora (bifidia, lactobacilli, etc.) presence and measurement of the pathogenic flora - adds the search for any occult blood and measures Calprotectin and Lactoferrin, to provide broad and complete information on the inflammatory state of the mucous membranes.
This type of test can also be combined with the detection of M2PK, a type 2 Piuvato Kinase protein: an indicator of deep inflammation and mucosal damage. Particularly suitable for family history of colon cancer, polyposis and inflammatory bowel disease.
Gut Screening Plus is more indicated in all those cases in which, due to the presence of already diagnosed pathologies and recurring symptoms or a familiarity with certain pathologies, a thorough measurement of intestinal inflammation is appropriate.
