Th1/Th2 Balance Hydrogen Sulfide
The Urine Balance Test aims at detecting alterations of the Th1/Th2 balance. Modulation of the Th1/Th2 balance may affect the susceptibility to, or the outcome of infections, allergic diseases, auto-immunity, cancer and other deleterious conditions.
The UBT test may detect disturbances of this delicate equilibrium in time in order to restore balance whenever required and before irreversible conditions are developing. The test allows patients to follow-up on Th1/Th2 balance during therapy and to evaluate whether the treatment he or she is undergoing is really effective. In addition the test also provides a tool to check the effectiveness of over the counter sold products claiming to balance Th1/Th2 status such as: anti-oxidants, probiotics and other. Thus far Th1/Th2 profiles can only be determined in specialised laboratories. These analyses are blood-based and practically are hard to be performed repeatedly over short periods of time.
In summary, the UBT test is a simple self-test allowing to determine personal Th1/Th2 profiles repeatedly over short time periods and to follow-up on the effect of therapy, intake of drugs and nutraceuticals or any other strategy to balance Th1/Th2 states.
The test is a research test only.
The test has not yet been approved as clinical diagnostic test, and should be considered as research use only. Interpretation of the results should be done by a health care professional.
