Calprotectin is a neutrophilic marker specific for inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract. It is elevated with infection, post-infectious IBS, and NSAID enteropathy. Fecal calprotectin can be used to differentiate IBD vs. IBS, to monitor treatment in IBD, and to determine which patients should be referred for endoscopy and/or colonscopy. Levels between 50-120 should be repeated at 4-6 weeks and confirmed.
