Summary Introduction. Fecal calprotectin (FC) concentrations of patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are much higher than those of healthy controls or patients with func- tional disorders or other gastrointestinal diseases. Thus FC is a good biomarker of gut inflammation in differential diagnosis of IBD as well as mucosal healing in monitoring of IBD in adults. There is shortage of data concerning predictive value of FC in mucosa status assessment in children with IBD. Aim. The aim… Expand
