  1. BACKGROUND: The sensitive guaiac faecal occult blood test, Haemoccult SENSA (HOS; Beckman Coulter, Fullerton, CA, USA), is our standard screening test for significant colorectal neoplasia. We evaluated an automatically-developed, quantified human…
  2. BACKGROUND: The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force requested a decision analysis to inform their update of recommendations for colorectal cancer screening. OBJECTIVE: To assess life-years gained and colonoscopy requirements for colorectal cancer…
  3. BACKGROUND & AIMS: The fecal occult blood test (FOBT) is recommended as a screening test for colorectal cancer, but there are few reliable studies on the accuracy of immunochemical FOBT. The aim of this study was to analyze the sensitivity of…
  4. We evaluated the sensitivity for colorectal cancer (CRC) of the latex agglutination test (LAT), an immunochemical test routinely used in the Florence District screening programme since 2000. Sensitivity was calculated by the proportional interval…
  5. BACKGROUND: Fecal immunochemical tests (FIT) are an advanced fecal occult blood test (FOBT) technology that reduces barriers to population screening by simplifying the logistics of stool-sampling. The current study was conducted to undertake a…
  6. BACKGROUND: The guaiac faecal occult blood test (gFOBT) has been proved as a screening investigation for colorectal cancer, but has disadvantages. Newer faecal immunochemical tests (FITs) have many advantages, but yield higher positivity rates and…
  7. OBJECTIVES: The immunological fecal occult blood test (IFOBT) has established itself as a more precise marker for colorectal cancer (CRC) screening than traditional guaiac-based FOBT. The simpler, cheaper, and more convenient newer office-based…
