Pill Cam Device

During a capsule endoscopy procedure, the patient will swallow a tiny camera that’s about the size of a large vitamin pill. The Pillcam is a capsule you swallow is  designed to examine the small bowel. The PillCam SB system is an ingestible capsule the size of a vitamin. It contains a tiny camera and light source that takes pictures of your small intestine as it travels naturally through your digestive tract. It takes 2 to 6 images per second, generating anywhere from 57,600 to 172,800 pictures in an eight-hour period. The images are then transmitted to a recorder that you wear on a strap across your body. Sensors placed on your stomach or in a sensor belt help transmit these images.

PillCam can aid in the early detection of disorders of the small intestine such as Crohn’s disease, iron deficiency anemia, small bowel tumors, and celiac disease.

NERD Non-Erosive Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

Nonerosive Reflux Disease (NERD)

Nonerosive reflux disease (NERD), a subcategory of GERD, is a heterogeneous disorder characterized by troublesome reflux-related symptoms in the absence of endoscopic evidence of esophageal mucosal erosions or breaks. Approximately 50-85% of patients with reflux-related symptoms that are accompanied by negative endoscopic findings are diagnosed with NERD. It is estimated that more than two-thirds of GERD patients have NERD.

Barrett’s Esophagus

The exact cause of Barrett’s esophagus is not fully understood, but long-term GERD is the number one risk factor. Not all people with GERD get Barrett’s esophagus – in fact, it develops in less than 10% of people with GERD. It is more common in people who have had GERD for a long time or who were diagnosed with it at a young age.

Learn more about clinical trials for the diagnosis and treatment of Barrett’s Esophagus.

Colonoscopy Prep

Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect or treat gastrointestinal diseases or conditions, while also providing valuable information about health and disease progress. Colonoscopy is the most important step in the prevention of colon cancer. Colonoscopy is the only colon cancer screening method that allows your gastroenterologist to visualize the entire colon and remove most polyps at the same time.

The most important step prior to your colonoscopy is cleaning out your colon. This will allow your physician to discover and remove polyps. Learn more about a new trial on colonoscopy prep.
