eosinophilic protein x RP
EPX (Eosinophilic Protein X) from feces. (feces RP)
One of the four major proteins found in the granules of human eosinophilic leukocytes (granulocytes). They play a key role in the allergic inflammatory process. EPX is used as a parameter in feces to detect inflammation and atopic eczema caused by allergies and/or food intolerances, to measure the degree of activity of the inflammation present and to test the efficacy of an elimination diet. Experience shows that EPX also responds to parasitic infections.

Interpretation test result
This means that degranulation takes place of naturalized white blood cells (eosinophilic granulocites). Degranulation can occur under the influence of food intolerances or allergies or in parasitic infections.
Note: EPX will no longer elevate in chronic infections or intolerances and will then give a false negative.
