GI Pathogen Plus Profile
The GI Pathogen Plus Profile (GPP) is a multiplexed nucleic acid test that is designed to not only be a qualitative identification of various organisms and toxins often seen in patients with GI issues and illnesses, but also a quantitative value that may be useful in following the infection over time. Furthermore, DRG is the only laboratory on the market that performs quantitative assessment of a patient’s susceptibility pattern to commonly prescribed antibiotics, so to better guide the judicious and appropriate use of antimicrobials.
This portion of the panel will only be performed when any of the bacteria or toxins report a positive value. DRG also performs quantitation of several GI health markers to provide the health care practitioner valuable information in confidently identifying issues such as gluten sensitivity, inflammation associated with conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, and helps track the activity and severity of these crucial and often misunderstood diseases.Interpreting the GI Pathogen Plus ReportWatch presentation video
