Calprotectin is a protein released by the blood cells of the body’s defence system-WBCs, especially neutrophils. When there is an inflammation in the body, especially the gastrointestinal tract, the neutrophils get transported to the concerned site of action and release calprotectin, which then gets excreted in the faeces. This test assesses the presence of any inflammatory reactions taking place in the intestine.
