What is The KTT - Test?
The KTT-Test is a sophisticated method to test your body’s immune-/defense-system and detect latent triggering factors for diseases. The test is based on the changes different germs, allergens and/or antigens in the broadest sense cause in a patients blood count when it encounters foreign particles. These antigens initiate changes in the concentration of proteins in a cell (granularity) in the cell nucleus (DNA/RNA) as well as form and size of white blood cells (toxicity).
The baseline in the attached diagrams describes the normal non-contaminated blood count – ref. pages 2-5). The bigger the amplitude is the stronger is the influence of the respective antigens on the cell.
The base values of concern when testing the approx. 300 different triggering factors and their combinational influence are
- The percentage change of their granularity:
meaning the difference in the composition of the cytoplasm (=cell fluid); measures the concentration of proteins, a cell produces or looses due to a stimulating antigen
- The percentage change of the DNA/RNA:
meaning the difference of the cell nucleus; measuring the increase/decrease in mass
- The percentage toxicity measured in form and size of the cell
describing the swelling and shrinking of the cell as a whole
When referring to measuring, we do not mean single measurements, but mean values of different measurements. From these three base values explained above sensitivity factors are calculated which provide an indication of each toxin’s degree of damage.
CT-Test 1 – page 2 – Change of the cell morphology of the granulocytes
Summarizes the results of the three base values correlates the different triggering factors to each other and takes the inside of granulocytes (a kind of white blood cell) into special consideration.
CT-Test 2 – page 3 – leukocyte degranulation
Resembles a similar measure as the so called leukocyte1 degranulation test, which is a measure of the activity of producing proteins which in turn are very important for the body’s defense.
CT-Test 3 – page 4 – Cell morphology, amount of leukocytes and thrombocytes
Includes measures of sensitivity factor 1 and adds an evaluation of thrombocytes (responsible for blood clotting and small repairs in the body). In combination with other cells thrombocytes are oftentimes underestimated when looking at immune reactions.
CT-Test 4 – page 5 - induction
This formula selectively tests the influence of the main representatives of immune competent cells (granulocytes, lymphocytes thrombocytes and monocytes).
CT-Test 5 – page 5 – toxic effect on thrombocytes
This test examines the effect of an agent on the amount of thrombocytes. Thrombocytes play an important role in allergic reactions and process of immune sensitization.
Only a comparison of single measurements in combination with the composition of the results leads to a profound insight regarding the influence of the different triggering factors on the immune system.
You can see which agent causes which immune reaction in what manner according to their influence.The significant graph can be found in the “cumulative description of relevant antigens” and respectively in a ranking (“Relevant antigens, numeric-, single- and sum results”). The effects of the tested agents on the cellular immune system in comparison to the regular blood are identified as low (green), significant (yellow), very strong (red).
For a comprehensive feedback to your results, please contact your attending therapist.
1 Leucocytes are white blood cells circulating in blood and lymphatic system. They are part of the immune system responsible for directly (t cells and macrophages) and indirectly (B-cells producing antibodies) attacking foreign invaders.
