ColoSTAT® Blood Test to Detect Bowel Cancer New Research Study - Now Enrolling
Who can participate? Adults 40 - 84 years old who are planning to have a colonoscopy within the next few months.
What is the purpose of the study? In Australia, bowel cancer is the second most common internal cancer for both men and women. Currently, a colonoscopy is the main test to investigate or diagnose bowel cancer.
In this study, doctors are evaluating whether a simple blood test (called the ColoSTAT test) can be as effective at detecting bowel cancer compared to a colonoscopy. If effective, the ColoSTAT test may reduce the need for invasive procedures in the future.
How long does the study last? The study will include a visit (approximately 30 minutes) to a participating study site before your colonoscopy, as well as a follow-up phone call.
Are there any costs to me? No. There are no costs involved in participating in this study. If you qualify and choose to join the study, you will be reimbursed for your time and travel to visit the study centre.
