The OC-Light Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT)
UCSF Prevention Research Center (PRC) researchers studied results from over 35,000 tests performed on nearly 21,000 patients. The test seems to effectively identify high-risk individuals, resulting in high-yield colonoscopy procedures. The study provides health systems with a perspective on the colonoscopy demand and performance characteristics of OC-Light as a screening tool in large, diverse patient groups.
