Inflammatory Bowel Screen Blood Test

Item # LC164830

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic disorder of the lower gastrointestinal tract. This test helps differentiate between types of IBD, including Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and indeterminate colitis.

This panel contains the following tests:

  • Atypical perinuclear antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (pANCA)
  • Saccharomyces cerevisiae, IgA
  • Saccharomyces cerevisiae, IgG

Sample Report

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic disorder of the lower gastrointestinal tract that may occur in three forms: Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and indeterminate colitis. This panel can be useful in differentiating between which form of IBD.

Nearly 80% of people who have Crohn's disease are positive for either IgA or IgG antibodies to S. cerevisiae (a type of yeast). In ulcerative colitis, <15% are positive for IgG, and <2% are positive for IgA. The atypical ANCA pattern has been observed in a significant percentage of patients with ulcerative colitis.

Instructions

Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
