Gastroenterology Podcast November 2014: Comparing Fecal Immunochemical Tests and Colonoscopy in Familial Colorectal Cancer Screening

A study in the November issue of Gastroenterology shows results of a controlled randomized trial to compare the efficacy of repeated fecal immunochemical tests (FITs) and colonoscopy in detecting advanced neoplasia (advanced adenoma or colorectal cancer [CRC]) in family members of patients with CRC. Dr. Kuemmerle speaks with the first author of the study, Dr. Enrique Quintero of the University of La Laguna; Plus, a rundown of top stories from this month's issue of GI and Hepatology News.
