German capsule endoscopy gets funding boost:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

German Cancer Aid is to sponsor research at the University of Bochum into the use of capsule endoscopy to the tune of E249,000 ($270,000). The university hospital at Bochum is to use the money to compare the efficacy of Yokneam, Israel-based Given Imaging's capsule endoscopy with more established methods in the detection of early-stage bowel cancer. 75 patients per year will take part in the three-year study in six research centres at the universities of Bochum, Bonn, Dresden, Dusseldorf, Heidelberg and Munchen/Regensburg. Some 57,000 individuals contract bowel cancer each year in Germany and some 30,000 die as a result, making it one of the three most malignant forms of cancer.
