Important: If this is your first time ordering Cyrex Array 14, we recommend ordering the Mucosal Immune Reactivity Screen and Total Secretory IgA Mucosal Combo to confirm the accuracy of your results.
Cyrex Array 14 is a very cost effective, easy, and non-invasive method, to measure mucosal immune reactivity to a range of exogenous and endogenous antigens. The categories of antigens include assessments for intestinal dysfunction, food immune reactivity, gut dysbiosis, infection and possible enteric nervous system autoimmune reactivity. This mucosal immune response is the body’s first immune system reaction. If steps to bring balance back to the mucosal immune response are not taken, the immune reactivity may result in a breach of the intestinal barrier, followed by a systemic immune reaction. The inflammation of systemic autoantibodies contributes to the progression of autoimmune and neuroautoimmune reactivities.

Total Secretory IgA
Mucosal surfaces are the first lines of defense against invasion and colonization by pathogenic microorganisms. The principal molecule of mucosal immune responses is Secretory IgA (SIgA), a complex of polymeric IgA and the epithelial cell-derived secretory component. Upon activation, B-cells in the mucosa form these complexes, which, through polymeric IgA receptors (pIgR), bind to the mucus layer protecting the gut epithelium, thereby preventing antigen attachment to the intestinal wall and its subsequent penetration of the intestinal lining. Mechanisms of defense include agglutination, mucus trapping, neutralization of enzymes, toxins and viruses and interaction with innate anti-microbial factors. Immunoglobulin A is the only isotype that can be selectively passed across mucosal walls to reach the lumens of organs lined with mucosal cells.
