Study Of An Investigational Home Stool Sample Collection Kit For Colorectal Cancer

Description

Seeking men and women aged 40 and older scheduled to undergo a screening colonoscopy in the next 90 days for a study of a stool sample collection kit for colorectal cancer.

Overview

Participants in this study will be given the investigational stool sample collection kit and shipping supplies so that they can collect and send off the investigational test prior to their screening colonoscopy.

What we're hoping for

We are studying whether an investigational colon cancer screening test conducted on stool samples collected at home is effective in detecting colon cancer.
