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.”
