Whether using a quantitative or qualitative FIT, another important issue is the number of FIT samples necessary for optimal sensitivity and specificity. Fecal occult blood test products are either guaiac-based or immunochemical.

BayMS, 2 and Barcey T. The results serendipitously provide information about which tests are popular or more frequently used. Each of the fiob proficiency testing programs provided a list of all fecal occult blood tests that they perform evaluations which included both guaiac and immunochemical tests.

It is disconcerting that negative hemmosure tested positive. Quality and the college of American pathologists. Further investigation to determine appropriate, reliable products for fecal occult blood testing is warranted.

We were able to obtain results for FIT testing from four testing programs. A follow up study.


Evaluation of Fecal Immunochemical Tests for CRC Screening

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Arch Pathol Lab Med. For the manual FITs, sensitivity ranged from Am J Prev Med. Some FIT products were evaluated by more than one program.

Analytical comparison of three quantitative immunochemical fecal occult blood tests for colorectal cancer screening. If an automated system is used, another issue to take into consideration is the cutoff point for hemoglobin detection.

Laboratories throughout the U. Validity of immunological faecal occult blood screening for colorectal cancer: Comparison of guaiac-based and quantitative immunochemical fecal occult blood testing in a population at average risk undergoing colorectal cancer screening.

Lower positivity rates but still acceptable detection rates for early-stage colorectal cancers. However, some had low sensitivity and specificity and probably should not be used for population-based or other screening. There are over fecal occult blood tests listed on the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments database of the U. Purpose The purpose of this study was to summarize the accuracy of results of individual FIT products across pathology proficiency testing programs.

An important issue is determining the advantages and disadvantages of using a quantitative FIT test over a qualitative hemosur.

Individual laboratories are provided with unidentified specimens for testing. The purpose of this study was to summarize the accuracy of results of individual FIT products across pathology proficiency testing programs. Offering annual fecal occult blood tests at hemowure flu shot clinics increases colorectal cancer screening rates.

An example of interpreting sensitivity and specificity is provided in Table 3. Author manuscript; available in PMC Jan 3.
