The New GI-MAP Microbial Markers – What Clinicians Need to Know

GI-MAP includes commensal and opportunistic biomarkers

The GI-MAP™ comprehensive stool analysis now includes four new commensal and opportunistic biomarkers (A. muciniphila, F. prausnitzii, Methanobacteriaceae (family), and Fusobacterium spp.). The carefully curated new biomarkers provide enhanced clinical insights based on the latest medical research. Further, the additional markers were added based on their ability to be modified using known clinical approaches.

In this presentation, Dr Tom Fabian will take clinicians on a marker-by-marker journey that explains the significance the new markers have on patient health, how to interpret them, and how to work with them in clinical practice.
