Interventions to Improve Colorectal Cancer Screening

We will evaluate if we can increase colorectal cancer screening rates by directly sending screening tests to patients rather than waiting for them to come to clinic visits. We are also ev...

Colorectal Cancer Screening in Familiar-Risk Population: Immunochemical Fecal Occult Blood Testing Versus Colonoscopy

This study is aimed: 1) to compare the accuracy of colonoscopy vs immunochemical faecal occult blood test (iFOBT) and colonoscopy when positive for colorectal cancer (CRC) screening in fam...

Quantitative Immunochemical Fecal Occult Blood Test in Symptomatic Patients

The aim of this study is to compare the outcome of three (3) quantitative immunochemical faecal occult blood test in symptomatic patients.

Usefulness of Fecal Immunochemical Test in Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDAFIT)

Prospective study to test whether the immunochemical fecal occult blood test (FIT) for colorectal cancer (CRC) helps to prioritize patients with iron deficiency anemia for colonoscopy.

Screening Tests in Detecting Colorectal Cancer

RATIONALE: Screening tests may help doctors detect cancer cells early and plan more effective treatment for colorectal cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized screening trial to compare the effective...

PubMed Articles [13929 Associated PubMed Articles listed on BioPortfolio]

The factors associated with negative colonoscopy in screening subjects with positive immunochemical stool occult blood test outcomes.

The immunochemical fecal occult blood test (iFOBT) is an alternative method to colonoscopy that can be used for colorectal cancer (CRC) screening. If the iFOBT result is positive, a colonoscopy is rec...

A Study of Immunochromatographic Fecal Occult Blood Test Methods.

The sensitivity of the commonly used immunochromatographic fecal occult blood test (iFOBT) is critical in the routine screening of digestive tract cancers.

Inappropriate Use of Fecal Occult Blood Testing.

Eliminating in-Hospital Fecal Occult Blood Testing: Our Experience with Disinvestment.

Comparative effectiveness of mailed reminders with and without fecal immunochemical tests for Medicaid beneficiaries at a large county health department: A randomized controlled trial.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) screening is effective but underused. Screening rates are lower among Medicaid beneficiaries versus other insured populations. No studies have examined mailed fecal immunochemi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Chemical, spectroscopic, or microscopic detection of extremely small amounts of blood.

Resin from wood of certain species of GUAIACUM. It is used as clinical reagent for occult blood.

Testing erythrocytes to determine presence or absence of blood-group antigens, testing of serum to determine the presence or absence of antibodies to these antigens, and selecting biocompatible blood by crossmatching samples from the donor against samples from the recipient. Crossmatching is performed prior to transfusion.

Techniques for using whole blood samples collected on filter paper for a variety of clinical laboratory tests.

Radiotherapy where cytotoxic radionuclides are linked to antibodies in order to deliver toxins directly to tumor targets. Therapy with targeted radiation rather than antibody-targeted toxins (IMMUNOTOXINS) has the advantage that adjacent tumor cells, which lack the appropriate antigenic determinants, can be destroyed by radiation cross-fire. Radioimmunotherapy is sometimes called targeted radiotherapy, but this latter term can also refer to radionuclides linked to non-immune molecules (see RADIOTHERAPY).
