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 familiar-risk population and; 2) to determine the complications associated with both strategies.
This is an observational, controlled, randomized phase III study to evaluate the effectiveness of the iFOBT for detecting advanced neoplasia (polyps > 1cm in size, high grade dysplasia or with villous component, or CRC) in first degree relatives of patients with CRC.
Index cases will be interviewed to obtain the family tree and their first-degree relatives will be contacted to invite them to participate in the study. Index-cases, will be randomized into one of the following two groups in order that their relatives receive the same screening strategy: A) colonoscopy; or B) annual iFOBT test (OC-Sensor®, cut off ≥50 ng/ml) and colonoscopy if positive. To determine the sensitivity and specificity of the iFOBT strategy, individuals randomized to group B will be invited to undergo a complete colonoscopy following two years follow-up. In addition, epidemiological data, personal history of disease, family history of neoplasm, characteristics of lesions at colonoscopy and histological diagnosis will be recorded.
To test the hypothesis of equivalence between the iFOBT test and colonoscopy for detecting advanced colorectal neoplasm, it was considered a probability of participation, detection capability and prevalence of advanced adenomas for iFOBT of 0.750, 0.565 and 0.077, respectively, being the product of them 0.033. In the case of colonoscopy, the likelihood of participation, detection capability and prevalence of advanced adenomas in this population at risk are 0,500, 0.965 and 0.077, respectively, and their product 0.037. Accordingly, for a Type I error (alpha) of 5%, a power of 80% and a maximum deviation between the probabilities of the two tests of 0.03 the number of subjects to be included per arm is 744

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.
Patients with an immunochemical fecal test positive, have to undergo a colonoscopy. Around 10% doesn't realize the colonoscopy. This study evaluate the impact of a motivational phone call ...
The aim of this study is to compare the outcome of three (3) quantitative immunochemical faecal occult blood test in symptomatic patients.
RATIONALE: Screening tests, such as colonoscopy and fecal occult blood test, may help doctors find tumor cells early and plan better treatment for colorectal cancer. PURPOSE: This randomi...
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...
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...
Some patients (10 % - 32 %) with a positive guaiac fecal occult blood test (gFOBT) do not undergo the recommended colonoscopy. The aim of this study was to compare video capsule endoscopy (...
European guidelines recommend screening for colorectal cancer (CRC) using the fecal immunochemical test (FIT), with follow-up colonoscopies for individuals with positive test results. However, more th...
The fecal immunochemical test (FIT) is widely used in colorectal cancer (CRC) screening. The OC-Light FIT is 1 of 2 FITs recommended for CRC screening by the Preventive Services Task Force guidelines....
The sensitivity of the commonly used immunochromatographic fecal occult blood test (iFOBT) is critical in the routine screening of digestive tract cancers.
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
Positive test results in subjects who do not possess the attribute for which the test is conducted. The labeling of healthy persons as diseased when screening in the detection of disease. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)
A test to detect non-agglutinating ANTIBODIES against ERYTHROCYTES by use of anti-antibodies (the Coombs' reagent.) The direct test is applied to freshly drawn blood to detect antibody bound to circulating red cells. The indirect test is applied to serum to detect the presence of antibodies that can bind to red blood cells.
Method of measuring the bactericidal activity contained in a patient's serum as a result of antimicrobial therapy. It is used to monitor the therapy in BACTERIAL ENDOCARDITIS; OSTEOMYELITIS and other serious bacterial infections. As commonly performed, the test is a variation of the broth dilution test. This test needs to be distinguished from testing of the naturally occurring BLOOD BACTERICIDAL ACTIVITY.
A projective test used to evaluate a broad range of personality variables including pathology of thought and perception. The subject's responses to inkblot prints are scored along with subjective interpretation by the test administrator.
