Otakaro Pathways has developed unique and patented methods to identify a particular bacteria. We believe this bacterium is the trigger organism for Crohn’s disease.
Our detection test acts as a biomarker, which can support the diagnosis of Crohn’s disease, as well as several other autoimmune diseases.
Using our technology we are able to offer this unique test directly to patients. Your results could provide additional evidence of the trigger of your Crohn’s, so you can seek out appropriate treatment options.
