Cutting-edge technologies signify a new era for colorectal cancer screening

art-up company in Israel. The team evaluated the technology for the duration of the procedure, the average advancement (in centimeters) of the device, mucosal damage and achieved success in each major endpoint.

Based on the similarities in size and dimension of the human colon, the team used 10 young, female pigs in this study and conducted the procedure twice in each pig. The procedure ranged from 11 to 29 minutes (an average of 16.5 min). The average advancement and pull back duration were 10 minutes (range of 2-19 min) and 3.4 minutes (range of 2-9 min), respectively. In all cases, the Aer-O-Scope advanced at least 102 cm (mean 143 cm), and in 12 cases it advanced as far as possible (155 cm). In the eight cases where the Aer-O-Scope did not fully advance, the colon had inadequate bowel preparation.

Following the Aer-O-Scope procedure, a gastroenterologist performed a standard colonoscopy to detect perforation, erosion and mucosal damage. No significant adverse events were detected. All animals were in good condition at 24 hours and seven days post-procedure.

"Preliminary studies which supplied the proof of concept in humans as well as the study presented here suggest that this technology could provide a reliable, less invasive, sedation-free and more easily administered screening option for colon cancer," said Nadir Arber, M.D. of the Tel-Aviv Sourasky Medical Center and lead author of the study. "Although we have more work to do before this device is widely utilized in humans, it is an exciting prospect for patients and physicians alike."

Evaluation of a New Partially-Automated, Potentially Sedationless Colonoscope (Abstract 562)

A concern regarding colonoscopy screening is the discomfort associated with the procedure for the patient. A new type of colonoscopy system (the Navigator Endoscopy System) developed by Silicon Valley-based NeoGuide Systems may offer patients an effective, painless an
