The Reizdarm-Fragebogen (RDF) is the first German questionnaire to assess subjectively perceived symptom severity of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Thus far, this was only possible in the context of a medical examination by a practitioner. The goal of the current study was to assess differences in RDF scores among IBS patients and other clinical and non-clinical populations. Further, the study aimed to define a cut-off score for the presence of IBS and thereby, to evaluate the RDF as screening instrument in IBS diagnosis.

Measures for assessing the results of diagnostic and screening tests. Sensitivity represents the proportion of truly diseased persons in a screened population who are identified as being diseased by the test. It is a measure of the probability of correctly diagnosing a condition. Specificity is the proportion of truly nondiseased persons who are so identified by the screening test. It is a measure of the probability of correctly identifying a nondiseased person. (From Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)
Voltage-dependent cell membrane glycoproteins selectively permeable to calcium ions. They are categorized as L-, T-, N-, P-, Q-, and R-types based on the activation and inactivation kinetics, ion specificity, and sensitivity to drugs and toxins. The L- and T-types are present throughout the cardiovascular and central nervous systems and the N-, P-, Q-, & R-types are located in neuronal tissue.
