PEPTEST™ - first non-invasive reflux disease test

Peptest is the latest non-invasive test for reflux diagnostics worldwide. It is a precise, painless and relatively cheap saliva test, which can provide a reliable proof of the presence of reflux disease.

How does Peptest work?

Pepsin, which is needed for splitting proteins, occurs naturally in the stomach. However, if pepsin also occurs outside the stomach, the individual suffers from reflux. That is why we take samples of saliva and test the presence of pepsin.

Considering the concentration of pepsin in the saliva sample we can determine how severe the reflux is. At the same time the prospects of ensuing treatment are assessed. The test can be carried out again during the treatment.

In what fields of medicine is the test used?

  • Gastroenterology – The most common symptoms of oesophagus reflux disease include heartburn and regurgitation. Peptest is an easy non-invasive method, which helps to diagnose patients suffering from GERD (gastroesophageal reflux) in the gastroenterologist’s surgery.
  • Otorhinolaryngology and pneumology – If patients often suffer from throat ache, chronic cough, sensation of a tight throat, asthma etc., they can be suffering from laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR). Peptest is a reliable method for diagnosing LPR.
  • Allergy and immunology – A lot of young and adult patients do not respond to the prescribed treatment. For an allergy-immunology ambulance Peptest is a simple and cheap method for LPR diagnostics and an appropriate treatment.

What is the target group of Peptest?

Patients of all ages who suffer from long-term difficulties such as:

  • Secretional obstruction,
  • hoarseness,
  • the sensation of a lump/something stuck in the throat,
  • fits of cough,
  • or excessive erosion of enamel.

How is Peptest administered?

  • Saliva or sputum is examined.
  • You will be given your sample taking kit by your attending doctor in all our clinics.
  • The sampling is performed after the night’s sleep before eating or drinking anything, or brushing your teeth. Do not smoke before the sampling.
  • The sampling must be performed in a vertical position.
  • Avoid drinking alkali water, taking antacids or medication containing alginates (for example Gaviscon) 48 hours before the sampling.
