About EnteroLab
Brochure

EnteroLab is a registered and fully accredited* clinical laboratory specializing in the analysis of intestinal specimens for food sensitivities (reactions by the immune system to common proteins in the diet) that cause a variety of symptoms and diseases. One particular area of our focus relates to intestinal conditions caused by immune reactivity to a protein called gluten which is found in wheat, barley, rye, and oats. Recent research in our laboratory indicates that immune sensitivity to gluten is exceedingly common, present in 30-40% of all Americans. Although these reactions can cause malnutrition, growth failure in children, osteoporosis, many autoimmune diseases (including colitis, diabetes, arthritis, and many others), most of the affected individuals are unaware they have it because there have been no sensitive tests capable of diagnosis. Similar sensitivity to yeast in the diet has been linked to the development of an inflammatory intestinal disease called Crohn's disease.

EnteroLab has developed a unique screening test for gluten sensitivity, as well as for many other antigenic food sensitivities, that is more sensitive and specific than tests in current use (U.S. and International patents issued). Our method utilizes stool rather than blood as the testing substrate; the rationale of using stool rather than blood for testing for food sensitivity is that immunologic reactions to proteins in the diet that cause these reactions are centered within the intestinal tract and not in the blood. We believe that our new tests can improve the health of millions of people worldwide. For more on the rationale and superiority of our method over pre-existing tests, please read an essay about this on this website Click here for Essay

EnteroLab is registered with the U.S. Government's Department of Health and Human Services department as part of the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). This agency oversees clinical laboratory standards and quality. We have also opted for (at our own expense) third-party accreditation from COLA, a non-profit national laboratory accreditation organization. EnteroLab passed this accreditation inspection in 2001 and re-accreditation in 2003, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014 with the highest standards. COLA accreditation is given only to laboratories that apply rigid standards of quality in day-to-day operations and pass a rigorous on-site laboratory survey. COLA is approved by the federal government and sponsored by the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians-American Society of Internal Medicine, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American Osteopathic Association.

Our Mission
EnteroLab was conceived because of the public health implications of the scientific discoveries of Kenneth Fine, M.D., a professor, intestinal researcher, and publisher of scientific journal articles for over 18 years. Dr. Fine is determined to bring the benefits of this research to those who need it most: people suffering ill-health effects, particularly intestinal illnesses, as the result of gluten sensitivity, microscopic colitis, yeast sensitivity, and the other causes of intestinal disease and dysfunction. By utilizing the power of the internet and the public's free access to it, the long delay associated with dissemination of new information through the medical ranks to patients (usually 10-15 years) can be bypassed. People can benefit today!
The Mission of EnteroLab is to improve the intestinal and overall health of men and women through expert diagnostic testing and analysis of intestinal specimens. Top
