Congratulations to the BADENOMA study team

Date: 03 January 2018

Our congratulations go to Professor Colin Rees and his team for successfully recruiting 3,222 patients to the BowelScope ADENOMA trial (BADENOMA). The trial led from South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust, and taking place across 16 sites around England, has completed recruitment 9 months ahead of target.

BADENOMA is a study of the effectiveness of a device in improving detection of colorectal adenomas in patients attending for flexible sigmoidoscopy screening, and is one of the largest randomised controlled endoscopy trials ever.

Professor Colin Rees, Chief Investigator of the trial said “I have never seen a recruitment curve for a Randomised Controlled Trial, in any area of medicine, quite like this one and it is due to the fantastic work of the research team and the brilliant network of world leading endoscopy research we have in the UK. We believe that this research will deliver answers to important questions to assist us in better preventing bowel cancer. A huge thanks to all of the patients who participated in this research.”

Professor Stephen Robson, Clinical Director for the NIHR Clinical Research Network North East and North Cumbria, added “This is an exemplar study in terms of achievement of set up and recruitment targets and the team at South Tyneside Hospitals, as well as those who contributed to this important study, are to be congratulated”.
The study highlights the North East and North Cumbria’s approach to both supporting and delivering local home grown research through a collaborative approach across the region through the Northern Region Endoscopy Group and also taking the opportunity to engage clinical teams outside of the region into gastroenterology research.
