We are pleased to make the announcement of the following clinical trial for pre-colonoscopy patients and patients with colorectal Cancer.
A Comparison of the Performance of the Epi proColon and Fecal Immunochemical
Test Post Colonoscopy in Subjects with Colorectal Cancer and
Pre colonoscopy in Subjects from Guideline- Eligible Screening Population
The primary objective of the investigation is to show that the clinical performance in terms of test positivity’s of the investigational Epi proColon 2.0 is non-inferior to OC FIT-CHEK® (Polymedco), a commonly used and commercially available (in the United States) fecal immunochemical test (FIT) used for the detection of colorectal cancer.
If you have patients who you feel may qualify for this trial, or have questions regarding eligibility, please contact any one of our offices listed on our website to schedule an evaluation. We look forward to working with you.
