the degree of gut dysbiosis.
The gut microbiota
Microbiota - is a collective term, which denotes all the intestinal microorganisms, which play an important role in digestion, immunity, etc.
The factors that influence the microbiota are very diverse: genetics, age, diet, physical activity, psycho-emotional state, medications, infections and inflammatory processes.

Modern approaches to regulating microbiota for clinical benefit include: probiotics and prebiotics, combinations thereof (symbiotics), certain antibiotics, lifestyle changes, FODMAP diet, fecal microbiota transplant (FMT
Gut dysbiosis
Dysbiosis - is a permanent or temporary imbalance between different types of natural gut microbiota, associated with IBD and IBS, obesity, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, diabetes, depression, carcinogenesis, etc.
Clinical studies have shown that 16% of healthy people have moderate dysbiosis (DI 3); in patients with IBD and IBS in 20-30% - normobiosis (DI 1-2), and in 70-80% - severe dysbiosis (DI 4-5).

DI – dysbiosis index
IBD – inflammatory bowel disease
IBS – irritable bowel syndrome

GA-map® Dysbiosis Test

Unique opportunities


- A reliable and easy-to-use diagnostic tool for profiling the gut microbiota, that delivers accurate and reproducible results.


- Differentiation of normo- and dysbiotic intestinal microflora in adult patients aged between 18 and 70 years.


- Assessment of the degree of dysbiosis (dysbiosis index) - deviations from the control values of a healthy population.


- Semi-quantitative determination of bacterial 16S rRNA in patient feces.


- A reliable, standardized tool for monitoring changes in the gut microbiota during treatment, lifestyle adjustments, and diets.


- Possibility to create profiles of the human gut microbiota and associate them with patients’ health.

Areas of application

Nutritiology
Applicable clinical research

Clinical application

Inflammatory
Bowel
Disease
Help in diagnosing, identifying and characterizing gut dysbiosis, treatment monitoring, predicting the treatment effectiveness of patients with ulcerative colitis with inhibitors of tumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF).

Note
The microbiota of patients with a positive therapeutic response differs distinctly from that of patients with a negative response (compared to pre-treatment data). During therapeutic efficacy, the microbiota normalizes much faster than decreases the level of fecal calprotectin.
Irritable
Bowel
Syndrome
Help in diagnosing, identifying and characterizing gut dysbiosis, treatment monitoring, predicting the treatment effectiveness of patients on the FODMAP diet.

Note
FODMAP - "fermentable oligo-, di-, monosaccharides and polyols". These are the so-called simple, poorly digestible carbohydrates that cause the fermentation processes in the gut:
- Food rich in fructans and galactooligosaccharides (wheat, barley and rye, onions and some legumes).
- Food that contains lactose, and fructose with glucose excess (apples, pears, asparagus, watermelon and honey).
- Food rich in mannitol, maltitol, sorbitol and xylitol (peaches, apricots and artificially sweetened foods).

How it works

Where to take the test in Moldova
GA-map® Dysbiosis Test
is only available from ALFA diagnostica medical laboratory. You collect the biomaterial and send it to the lab.

How to collect material

for analysis

The procedure for collecting feces is described in the instructions that come

with the kit. After collection is complete, the kit should be delivered to any ALFA diagnostica collection center.

Where the test is performed
In the laboratory of Genetic Analysis AS (Oslo, Norway).

Report

You can get it in any center ALFA diagnostica personally, through your legal representative (by power of attorney) or by e-mail.
Validation
Cerification
Restrictions
Validation and standardization for clinical use
GA-map® Dysbiosis Test
Clinically validated and standardized in healthy volunteers and patients with IBD and IBS from across northern and southern Europe.
- Used in more than 50 clinical studies
- Published in 30 peer-reviewed scientific journals
Cerification
GA-map® Dysbiosis Test
Test is IVD (In Vitro Diagnostic) and CE (Conformite Europeenne) marked.

Restrictions
GA-map® Dysbiosis Test
Test is not designed for differential diagnosis of IBD, IBS and other gastrointestinal diseases.
Laboratory report
Laboratory report includes the results of the study: dysbiosis index (ID); functional imbalance - characteristics and ratios in the detected bacterial profiles with comments, prevalence (abundance) of bacteria. The report also contains additional information about the characteristics of individual gut bacterial species.
GA-map® – gut microbiota profiling platform
The innovative technology platform GA-map® uses variable regions (V3 - V9) in the 16S rRNA gene, which is common to all intestinal bacteria.

Molecular targets of bacteria are identified by multiplex analysis using single nucleotide primer extension technology (SNuPE).

For DNA hybridization, 48 molecular probes were used, identifying and characterizing more than 300 species of intestinal bacteria of different taxonomic levels.

The GA-map ™ Dysbiosis Analyzer software automatically compares detected bacterial levels in a patient, with those found in a healthy population, thus reliably differentiating normo- and dysbiotic gut microflora for clinically relevant results.
