Patient Brochure

Testing for faecal calprotectin is a useful screening tool for identifying patients who are most likely to have an endoscopy for suspected inflammatory bowel disease.

The main diseases that cause an increased excretion of faecal calprotectin are infectious colitis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and neoplasms (cancer). Essentially, an elevated calprotectin indicates that inflammation is likely present in the gastrointestinal tract.
