  • Does the Cap Increase the Finding of Polyps When Water Exchange Colonoscopy is Used

    open to eligible people ages 50-75

    This is a study to compare two different, but normally, used methods of colonoscopy in patients that require a routine or repeat colonoscopy. There will be three arms in this study: WE water control, water plus Cap-1, and water plus Cap-2. The patient will prepare himself/herself for the colonoscopy as per normal instructions and he/she will be given the information for the study at that time so that he/she can make a decision to participate in the study. The control method will use water instead of air inserted into the colon. The study method will use a new accessory, a cap that will fit onto the end of the colonoscope plus water during the procedure. This study will also confirm if using the cap method with water is a better way of detecting polyps in the colon and possibly cancer.

  • Feasibility and Colorectal Benefits of Pulses Supplementation

    open to eligible people ages 35-75

    Beans are a forgotten staple food that shows promise in improving health. The goal of this study is to look at how bean supplementation affects metabolic and bowel health. In the long-term, the investigators believe this research will lead to a better understanding of the impact of beans on bowel health. The investigators also hope that this research study will help us understand ways to improve human diet and prevent colon cancer in the future.

  • Early Detection of Advanced Adenomas and Colorectal Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This study aims to develop a highly sensitive, specific, and cost-effective blood assay for early detection of colorectal adenomas and cancer, using advanced machine learning and state-of-the-art biological analyses.

  • Improving Colonoscopy Surveillance for Patients With High Risk Colon Polyps

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This clinical trial tests a multilevel intervention at the clinic, provider and patient levels, to improve colonoscopy surveillance in patients with high risk colon polyps. Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a common and deadly disease that is largely preventable through the detection and removal of colorectal polyps. One million Americans are diagnosed with high risk polyps of the colon or rectum annually and are at increased risk for CRC; however, uptake of recommended repeat colonoscopy in 3 years to reduce CRC risk is low in this group. This multilevel intervention may work to improve timely colonoscopy screening for patients with high risk colon polyps.

  • Prevention of Colorectal Cancer Through Multiomics Blood Testing

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The PREEMPT CRC study is a prospective multi-center observational study to validate a blood-based test for the early detection of colorectal cancer by collecting blood samples from average-risk participants who will undergo a routine screening colonoscopy.
