The patients are assigned by randomisation on one of the two laxatives. After cleansing they have to fill in an evaluation form to report their findings and difficulties. Also the surgeon will be asked to fill in a score-form to report all details concerning the bowel preparation.

Primary: - To demonstrate the superiority of Moviprep® versus Colopeg® in gut cleansing prior to colonoscopy. Secondary: - To assess the safety of Moviprep® versus Col...
In order for flexible sigmoidoscopy to be a successful screening procedure, the bowel must be free of solid matter so the endoscopist has a clear view, increasing the chance of detection o...
This study will evaluate whether morning-only dosing of MoviPrep® (2L) for afternoon colonoscopy is as effective as a standard dosing regimen of half of the volume of MoviPrep® (1L) solu...
A properly prepared colon is vital to the success of any colonoscopy. The purpose of this study is to determine which colon prep, MoviPrep or HalfLytely is the superior prepping agent.
Colonoscopy is the gold standard investigation for assessing the lining of the colon. Colon cleansing preparations are required to be taken prior to colonoscopy to provide effective visual...
To evaluate if cleansing, using a solution containing the antimicrobial polyhexanide and the surfactant betaine (polyhexanide propylbetaine [PP], Prontosan Solution, B. Braun), can aid effective wound...
Moral threats, including threats to moral self-worth, have been associated with contamination concerns. Paradoxically, although self-cleansing provides temporary relief, it can worsen feelings of cont...
Effectiveness of colonoscopy as a screening tool for colorectal cancer prevention depends on the quality of bowel preparation. The type of bowel preparation agent prescribed is largely dependent on th...
Low-cost air pollution sensors are emerging and increasingly being deployed in densely distributed wireless networks that provide more spatial resolution than is typical in traditional monitoring of a...
Colorectal neuroendocrine carcinoma (CRNEC) is a rare type of malignancy and is quite aggressive with dismal prognosis. Neither large-scale retrospective studies nor prospective studies have been perf...
Clusters of colonic crypts that appear different from the surrounding mucosa when visualized after staining. They are of interest as putative precursors to colorectal adenomas and potential biomarkers for colorectal carcinoma.
Purifying or cleansing agents, usually salts of long-chain aliphatic bases or acids, that exert cleansing (oil-dissolving) and antimicrobial effects through a surface action that depends on possessing both hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties.
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).
Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
