From studies on colorectal cancer risk factors to research on outpatient colonoscopies, here are nine recent studies catching the eyes of gastroenterologists:
1. Freenome’s novel multiomics blood test for colorectal cancer detected advanced adenomas with a 41 percent sensitivity at 90 percent specificity, according to results from its Ai-Emerge study.
2. Patients who received an outpatient colonoscopy seldom go to the emergency room for unplanned complications, and of those who do it’s often for reasons unrelated to the procedure, according to a study published in Clinical and Experimental Gastroenterology.
