PillCam Study Proves Promising for Colonic Evaluation

Given Imaging Ltd. today announced that the results of the first PillCam COLON clinical studies were published in the October issue of Endoscopy, the official journal of The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. Conducted independently by the Rambam Medical Center, Hillel-Yaffe Medical Center and Bikur Holim Hospital in Israel and Erasme University Hospital in Belgium, both studies determined PillCam COLON to be a promising new modality for colonic evaluation.
"The ideal method to visualize the colon should be noninvasive, convenient, safe, well accepted by the target population, show high diagnostic accuracy and be cost-effective," said Rami Eliakim M.D., lead investigator of the Israeli multicenter study and chief of gastroenterology at Rambam Medical Center in Haifa, Israel. "If further study results confirm the recent data, PillCam COLON could represent a patient-friendly method for physicians to visualize the colon that could potentially lead to significantly wider patient compliance with guidelines."
