Normative Data for Fecal Calprotectin, age 4-16 yrs

This study collected prospective data from 212 children. Key finding: The median and 95th percentile for fCP were 18.8 mg/kg and 104.5 mg/kg, respectively. “We found a statistically significant association between the 95th percentile of fCP concentrations and age (p < 0.001).”

My take: This is another study showing that calprotectin cut off values need to be higher in younger children.
