Intestinal permeability is a phenomenon of the gut wall in which leakage of molecules and ions below 0.4 nm occurs from the gut lumen into blood circulation.
Assay Genie’s intestinal permeability assay kit is based on measuring the ratio of the absorption of lactulose and mannitol and the % absorption of these sugars is determined by the amount of excreted lactulose and mannitol measured in urine samples during the first 6 hours after ingestion. The degree of intestinal permeability is reflected by the ratio of the % absorption of lactulose to % absorption of mannitol.
