IBD Sensor

The IBD Sensor uses genetic analysis to determine the risk of Crohn’s disease.

Crohn’s disease can cause massive discomfort

Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease, which can cause both chronic and intermittent symptoms. Typical symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, and fatigue.

Crohn’s disease can also lead to a dangerous lack of nutrients and inflammation in other parts of the body, such as the joints. The course of the disease varies from patient to patient. In some cases, ulcers can also form in the intestine over time.

Causes of Crohn’s disease

The exact causes of Crohn’s disease have not yet clear. In addition to an unhealthy lifestyle, genetic changes play a particularly important role in Crohn’s disease.

About half of all those affected have specific genetic defects that influence the immune system. For this reason, genetic analysis can help to assess the individual risk of Crohn’s disease and take appropriate preventive measures if necessary.

How our IBD Sensor works

For our IBD Sensor, we analyze the submitted sample in our laboratory. We investigate the NOD2 gene for three genetic variations associated with Crohn’s disease. In addition, we assess the effect of 21 relevant drugs based on their genetic profile.

In this way, we can assess the risk of Crohn’s disease and whether concrete preventive measures should be taken.

Once the analysis has been successfully completed, we prepare a written report in which we present the results of our investigations and recommend any preventive measures that may be necessary.

In this way, our IBD Sensor enables reliable early detection and helps those affected to recognize symptoms in good time and alleviate them with an appropriate diet.

The IBD Sensor at a glance:

  • Analysis of 3 gene variations relevant to Crohn’s disease
  • Assessment of the risk of contracting Crohn’s disease
  • Reliable examination in our laboratory
  • Written evaluation of the test results
  • Individual recommendations for action

Are you interested in a demo report?

After a successful analysis, we summarize the individual results in a detailed result report. You will also find information on the analyzed genes and the underlying science in this demo.

We would be happy to send you the demo report. Just send us an email with the name of the analysis.
