BACKGROUND Fecal calprotectin may be used as a non-invasive method to assess the effect of novel therapies on the gut in cystic fibrosis (CF). METHOD Stools from CF patients and healthy controls (HC) (0-10years old) were prospectively collected for evaluation of temporal trends. RESULTS 130 CF samples (64 subjects) and 114 HC samples (101 subjects) were collected. Overall, fecal calprotectin levels were different in CF patients and HC from 0 to 10years (P=0.0002). Fecal calprotectin in CF… CONTINUE READING
