ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study examining the accuracy of screening with fecal calprotectin testing in patients with suspected inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The study found that screening with fecal calprotectin has high sensitivity and specificity in adults with suspected IBD. It was also found that sensitivity is similar in children and adults with suspected IBD, but specificity is lower in these children.
