It's a private specialty lab. They hold the patents on the stool tests that they do to search for the same antibodies that regular doctors look for in your blood. Because they hold the patents, they're the only lab that can run the tests that they developed. You can also get the genetics test from them, which they send out to Laboratories at Bonfils, which is a reputable immunogenetics lab. Go to www.enterolab.com and read their site for more info.

I'd explain more, but I'm brain fogging... :wacko:

Julie, what Nancy didn't mention is, that not only are they the only ones testing for celiac disease with stool tests, but also that those tests are a lot more accurate than the blood tests, and more sensitive.

Enterolab is not necessarily accepted by the mainstream medical community.

Dr. Fine's patented "discovery" has not been published in a peer reviewed medical journal.
