The author reflects on the study about the laboratory screening in children with suspected inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in Great Britain. He stresses that the laboratory results of the study IBD have limited value. The author suggests that researchers must perform more sophisticated analysis like calculating sensitivity for different combinations of laboratory values to identify early IBD in children.
