Faecal levels of calprotectin (FC) in systemic sclerosis (SSc) are stable over time and are higher compared to primary Sjogren's syndrome and rheumatoid arthritis.

 

FC could be a useful marker when novel, more specific drugs targeting the GI tract in SSc will be introduced. PubMed, Arthritis Res Ther, 2014 Feb 6. (Also see: Systemic Scleroderma Prognosis and Mortality: Biomarkers)
