Crohn‘s disease

Susceptibility for Crohn‘s disease

Several genes are associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) susceptibility; most of them encode for proteins that regulate microbiota (NOD2) or that may control host response (IL-23R). A patient with NOD2 homozygosity carries a 20-fold increased risk for CD. In this profile SNPs in NOD2 and IL-23R genes are determined.

This test is carried out on a sub-contracted basis by an accredited laboratory.
