IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Gastrointestinal Enzyme, Pepsinogen, Group II
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (typically serum) to determine a group (at least two) of proteolytic enzyme precursors with similar immunologic characteristics called group II pepsinogens. Group II pepsinogens are found in the chief and mucous neck cells of the oxyntic glands; they are also found in the cardiac and pyloric glands and in the Brunner's glands in the duodenum. Increased levels of pepsinogen group II are found in diseases associated with superficial gastritis and indicate a high risk of gastric ulcer; group II pepsinogen levels are
