Özet

Aim A high faecal calprotectin (FC) level is a non-invasive marker for inflammatory bowel disease. Nevertheless, healthy infants have elevated levels of FC with large variations. The aim of our study was to determine the levels of FC and associated factors in healthy infants aged 0-12 months.
