Increased intestinal permeability has been proposed as one aetiological factor for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). We have previously found that intestinal permeability of a water-soluble contrast medium, iohexol, correlates with disease activity. The objective was to compare the iohexol test with the lactulose-mannitol ratio, which is a more extensively studied permeability marker, in patients with active IBD. Urinary excretion of iohexol was compared to the lactulose-mannitol ratio in 22… CONTINUE READING
