In this study, we recruited 76 participants and performed colonoscopy examination as a gold standard and faecal M2-PK as the examined procedure.Results: From the result of this study, we identified the important role of M2-PK to screen the presence of bowel inflammation with the cut-off point of 1.05 U/mL compared to colonoscopy as gold standard with the sensitivity of 86.2%, specificity 81.8%, positive predictive value 96.6%, and negative predictive value 50%.Conclusion: From the result of this study, we suggested M2-PK examination to screen bowel inflammation in patients with lower gastrointestinal tract problems.
