1 h; 1 h; 10-20 min
Stool (100 mg), Urine
The granules of neutrophils (approx. 70% of the white blood cells) contain a large number of different enzymes. Myeloperoxidase (MPO) catalyzes the oxidation of substances through H2O2. The MPO H2O2â€“system has a toxic effect on many micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses and mycoplasma. The efficiency of the bacteria-destructive Myeloperoxidase H2O2â€“system is increased by PMN-Elastase. MPO determination in the stool reflects the inflammatory activity of CrohnÂ´s disease or ulcerative colitis.
