Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic disorder of the lower gastrointestinal tract that may occur in three forms: Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and indeterminate colitis.
This panel contains the following markers which can be useful for differentiating Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Nearly 80% of people who have Crohn's disease are positive for either IgA or IgG antibodies to Saccharomyces cerevisiae (a type of yeast). In ulcerative colitis, <15% are positive for IgG, and <2% are positive for IgA. The atypical ANCA pattern has been observed in a significant percentage of patients with ulcerative colitis.
