Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Measure & monitor mucosal healing changes over time
Improvement in mucosal damage provides an objective measure of therapeutic response in CD management.1 However, current assessment methods may not provide needed information, particularly when evaluating disease activity in difficult-to-reach locations to assess ideal disease.1-3
The Monitr® Crohn’s Disease Test is a laboratory-developed test that evaluates multiple markers of mucosal damage and repair processes, regardless of disease location.4 It applies a proprietary algorithm to 13 biomarkers to produce a quantitative Endoscopic Healing Index (EHI) Score—ranging from 0 to 100—to aid in distinguishing endoscopic remission from active disease in adult CD patients.
The next evolution
of the treat-to-target paradigm
In Crohn’s disease (CD) patient management, endoscopic healing is known to be an objective measure of therapeutic response.3 This is likely due to the fact that, in multiple clinical trials, endoscopic healing is a therapeutic goal that has been associated with improved long-term outcomes in CD patients3-6.
However, current assessment methods can make it challenging to:
- Noninvasively evaluate the endoscopic disease activity of your adult CD patients7,8
- Assess active disease in difficult-to-reach locations, including the ileum3,6,8
- Obtain objective results for individual patients7
- Regularly monitor patient response to therapy7
Measure and monitor the endoscopic disease activity of your adult CD patients with 1 simple serum test
The Monitr Crohn’s Disease Test is a laboratory-developed test that provides critical information to aid in:
- Establishing a baseline measurement of disease activity at initial presentation
- Tracking and assessing disease activity and response to therapeutic management
- Optimizing treatment management decisions
- Evaluating if treatment changes may be appropriate
- Counseling patients about therapeutic management goals
A powerful monitoring tool for CD patients.
