Further research is needed on the impact of faecal calprotectin testing on clinical decision-making when added to current practice. This includes research into optimal cut-off values for tests and the investigation of repeat testing strategies in people with intermediate levels of faecal calprotectin. Development of a consistent definition for the 'intermediate range' is encouraged.
