SimtomaX DGP Test

Simtomax® is an accurate and rapid point-of-care test for the early detection of Celiac Disease and IgA Deficiency. It lowers the hurdle to serological testing by offering lab-equivalent performance and ease of use at the point of care – in just 10 minutes.

Celiac Disease is a chronic autoimmune disorder that occurs in genetically predisposed individuals due to an immune response to gluten, a storage protein of wheat, rye and barley. Celiac Disease is considered to affect 1% to 2% of the worldwide population, the majority of them being undiagnosed. The clinical presentation of Celiac Disease is extremely variable: patients can present critically ill with diarrhea and a classical malabsorption syndrome, or with atypical symptoms that can affect any organ system. The atypical, non-diarrheal presentations are the most frequent, making the diagnosis difficult to conduct.

Under-diagnosis and delay in the diagnosis of the disease is associated with a high rate of co-morbidities and patient dissatisfaction.

Undiagnosed celiac patients are: 9 times more likely to develop an intestinal lymphoma; 8 times more likely to suffer from fertility disorders, such as abortion and malformation; 35% have established osteoporosis; 20% suffer from anaemia; 60 times more likely to suffer a second autoimmune disease.
