AN INNOVATIVE TOOL FOR PATIENTS WITH CROHN'S DISEASE
CDPATH is a validated tool that uses a blood test to help predict the potential risk for developing serious complications within 3 years in adult patients with Crohn's disease (CD).
Your doctor can decide if this tool is appropriate for you as part of your overall assessment. CDPATH should only be considered as an additional piece of information in combination with your doctor's evaluation of your Crohn’s disease.
Patient PortrayalWhat is CDPath
WHAT IS CDPATH?
CDPATH uses a blood test and your doctor's evaluation of your disease to help predict your potential risk for developing serious Crohn's disease-related complications* within 3 years. Knowing your risk profile can help you and your doctor have a more informed discussion about the potential path for your Crohn's disease.
Please see Eligibility & Cost for more details.
*CDPATH defines serious complications for patients with Crohn's disease as any fistulas or strictures in your bowels or any surgery in your bowels other than the area in or around the anus.
HOW CDPATH WORKS
CDPATH utilizes both your doctor's clinical evaluation of your Crohn's disease and your blood test to provide your risk profile for potentially developing Crohn's disease-related complications* within 3 years.
Report is based on a combination of factors:
DOCTOR'S EVALUATION OF YOUR CROHN'S DISEASE
BLOOD TEST MARKERS GENETIC DATA
Based on your report, you will see your profile as having a low, medium, or high potential
risk of developing Crohn's disease-related complication* over the next 3 years.
LOW RISK result
MEDIUM RISK result
HIGH RISK result
Actual charts will vary based on each individual patient's results.
How will you receive your results?
Your doctor will receive your CDPATH report approximately 7 days after your blood is drawn and set up a time to review it with you. Ask your doctor if you have questions about the information you see in your report.

Your doctor may include the result you get as part of the overall assessment of your Crohn's disease and disease management plan.
