AcronymDIBOTEST

Proposal titleDIET AND IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME : TRIGGERS, TESTING AND

TREATMENT

AbstractIrritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most difficult and unsatisfactorily treated

chronic diseases in primary healthcare. No simple diagnostic test for IBS exists currently,

however, there is increasing evidence that there are dietary and immunological

components to this disorder, and that food specific IgG may be a  useful diagnostic marker.

It is proposed that this project will : i) conduct epidemiological research to establish

the usefulness of food-reactive IgG as a dietary marker for IBS ii) use the knowledge

acquired in i) to develop a rapid, one-step, point-of-care test to identify the dietary trigger

of IBS.
