Test for the presence of pepsin
Peptest (www.peptest.cz) is a new, accurate, painless and fairly inexpensive saliva test kit, which reliably proves whether you suffer from reflux.
The first worldwide non-invasive test for establishing whether the patient suffers from reflux.
The body produces pepsin in the stomach in order to digest proteins. If pepsin is found outside the stomach, this is called reflux. Samples of saliva/sputum are collected and these are then tested for the presence of pepsin in a laboratory/clinic.
If there is pepsin present in your sample, its concentration is measured to determine how serious the reflux is and an assessment of the success rate of potential treatment is also prepared. The test can be performed repeatedly at any time during the course of treatment.
