FECOTAINER ® Faeces research provides a lot of information Page 3 Bacteriological research: Infections Chronic intestinal inflammation (Crohns disease, Ulcerative colitis) Colorectal cancer Obesity Diabetes Mellitus Research on blood in stool Precancerous colorectal cancer immunochemical Fecal Occult Blood Testing (iFOBT) Intestinal function Digestion Helicobacter pylori Salmonella, Shigella Campylobacter Yersinia enterocolitica The faeces of people reveals a lot about their health and thus plays an important role in the early identification of diseases, including colorectal cancer.
FECOTAINER ® The EU wants more preventive research into cancer Page 4 With more than 3 million new cases and 1.7 million deaths each year, cancer is the second biggest cause of death in Europe. Colorectal cancer is the second mortally cancer in Europe. In the early diagnosis is the chance of recovery 90%. This is possible with occult blood testing. 90% of cases of cancer occur of people over 50 years. The EU asks the Member States to roll- out preventive colorectal cancer screening programs.
FECOTAINER ® Page 5 Faecal Occult Blood Test The stool examination is an examination of very small amounts of blood in stool. This is the immunochemical Fecal Occult Blood Test (iFOBT). The stool will be checked in the laboratory under a microscope. Blood in the stool sample may indicate a polyp or tumour in the intestines, or may have other, more innocent causes. If blood is found in the FOBT test, the doctor will discuss with the patient if further investigation is needed. In the most cases there is an endoscopy investigation needed.
FECOTAINER ® Page 6 Current methods of collection of feces Gathering / collecting portion stool: The patient should caught the feces itself in a pot, pan, garbage bag or newspaper A portion of the feces must be scooped into the plastic feces jar For the patients this is very inconvenient ! Problems with the current collection methods: The feces jar will be inappropriate handed (e.g. too less filled) or smeared on the outside Incorrect intake provides unreliable research and threatens the health of laboratory employees Consequence: research delayed and intake should happen again
