Summary

This study compares a colonoscopy preparation composed of magnesium citrate capsules to a preparation of polyethylene glycol solution. The hypothesis is that the magnesium citrate capsules work as well and are better liked by patients due to the lack of taste.

Polyethylene Glycol Versus Low Volume Solutions Prior to Colonoscopy

Study evaluates the efficacy and tolerability of low volume preparations compared with conventional 4L polyethylene glycol prior to colonoscopy

Comparison of the Effectiveness of Bowel Preparations Before Colonoscopy

Polyethylene glycol is the gold standard of bowel preparation for colonoscopy. The most important disadvantage is high volume of this preparation. Sulphate based solution (SBS), low volume...

Study Comparing PEG 3350 Laxative to Placebo in the Treatment of Occasional Constipation (Study CL2007-12)(COMPLETED)

Randomized, placebo-controlled, double blind study. 203 subjects entered the study to compare the effect on occasional constipation of polyethylene glycol 3350 to placebo. Subjects took on...

Efficacy of Linaclotide Plus Polyethylene Glycol in Bowel Preparation for Colonoscopy: a Randomized, Double-blinded, Placebo Controlled Study

Linaclotide based bowel cleansing regimen might be helpful to improve bowel cleansing quality before colonoscopy.

Safety and Efficacy Study of CitraFleet (Sodium Picosulphate) as an Evacuating Treatment Prior to Colonoscopy.

The purpose of this study is to determine any significant differences in the efficacy and acceptability between CitraFleet and Klean Prep® (polyethylene glycol) for the preparation of gas...

Split-dose bowel preparation with polyethylene glycol for colonoscopy performed under propofol sedation. Is there an optimal timing?

Aspiration risk, especially with propofol sedation, remains a concern with split-dose bowel preparation using polyethylene glycol, which involves up to one liter of preparation intake close to the pro...

Polyethylene Glycol Preparation for Colonoscopy Associated With Heart Failure Exacerbation.

A low-volume polyethylene glycol solution was associated with an increased suboptimal bowel preparation rate but had similar recommendations for an early repeat colonoscopy, procedure times, and adenoma detection rates.

Low-volume polyethylene glycol (PEG) bowel preparations are better tolerated by patients than high-volume preparations and may achieve similar preparation quality. However, there is little data compar...

A Comparison of Bowel Preparations for Colonoscopy in Constipated Adults.

Clinical practice shows that patients with constipation are more likely to have a poor bowel preparation for colonoscopy. Consequences of poor bowel preparation include missed lesions, increased compl...

Solid Phase Stepwise Synthesis of Polyethylene Glycol.

Polyethylene glycol (PEG) and derivatives with eight and twelve ethylene glycol units were synthesized by stepwise addition of tetraethylene glycol monomers on a polystyrene solid support. The monomer...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ophthalmic solutions that include LUBRICANTS and WETTING AGENTS such as POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL; HYPROMELLOSE; GLYCEROL; PROPYLENE GLYCOL. They are used to treat conditions caused by deficient tear production such as DRY EYE SYNDROME.

A vinyl polymer made from ethylene. It can be branched or linear. Branched or low-density polyethylene is tough and pliable but not to the same degree as linear polyethylene. Linear or high-density polyethylene has a greater hardness and tensile strength. Polyethylene is used in a variety of products, including implants and prostheses.

Non-ionic surfactant of the polyethylene glycol family. It is used as a solubilizer and emulsifying agent in foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals, often as an ointment base, and also as a research tool.

A copolymer of polyethylene and polypropylene ether glycol. It is a non-ionic polyol surface-active agent used medically as a fecal softener and in cattle for prevention of bloat.

The infiltrating of histological specimens with plastics, including acrylic resins, epoxy resins and polyethylene glycol, for support of the tissues in preparation for sectioning with a microtome.
