Does anyone know if you can be tested for Fusobacterium varium at a hospital in Sweden? How do you test Fusobacterium varium if you can test it?

Hi..I don't exactly know....but you can call a testing lab or do the homework through "networking", asking questions and you'll probably get your answer.

Probably a stool and/or blood sample that your Doctor should be able to request. I know they do this for other bacteria, but I'm not positive about the F. varium. I was ask your doctor or call a local lab to see if it is common to test for.

"As an evidence that Fusobacterium varium cells invade from digestive tracts into the intestinal mucosa, an antibody (serum antibody) against Fusobacterium varium is detected in the sera of the patients with ulcerative colitis in a high detection rate and high antibody titers by the ELISA assay."


You may want to utilize the above as well.
