PROMETHEUS® Monitr™ Crohn's Disease Test

The serum test that gives the mucosa a voice

Measure and monitor mucosal healing status at any time in your Crohn's disease patients with 1 noninvasive test

Measure, monitor, and track mucosal healing status over time in your Crohn's disease (CD) patients with 1 noninvasive test

Mucosal healing provides an objective measure of therapeutic response in Crohn's disease management.1 However, current assessment methods may not provide needed information, particularly when assessing disease activity in difficult-to-reach locations like the small bowel.1-3

The PROMETHEUS® Monitr™ Crohn's Disease Test is a laboratory-developed test that evaluates multiple mucosal damage and repair processes, regardless of disease location.1 It features a proprietary algorithm specific to mucosal healing—and a unique combination of 13 biomarkers—to provide information that cannot be obtained with endoscopy or biopsy to aid in the assessment of mucosal healing.

Comprehensive assessment

Incorporates a panel of biomarkers that are associated with mucosal homeostasis, mucosal damage, and wound healing.4,5
