Wide Area Transepithelial Sample Esophageal Biopsy combined with computer assisted 3-dimensional analysis (WATS) For the Detection of Esophageal Dysplasia: A Prospective, Randomized, Tandem Study
A study for patients with Barrett's esophagus using a Wide Area Transepithelial Sample Esophageal Biopsy (WATS) kits for analysis
Sponsor: CDx Diagnostics
Enrolling: Male and Female Patients
Study Length: 6 Months
IRB Number: AAAO3311
Contact: Julian Adams: 212 305 1909 / ja660@columbia.edu
Additional Study Information: The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new technique called Wide Area Transepithelial Sample 3-Dimensional Esophageal Biopsy (WATS) with computer assisted method of analysis of brush biopsy. This study will assess whether performing standard biopsies in addition to the WATS brush biopsies identifies more patients with dysplasia than does performing standard biopsies alone. Barrett's esophagus (BE) is a change in the lining of the esophagus that predisposes to the development of esophageal cancer.
