ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01095432
First received: March 24, 2010
Last updated: September 4, 2013

  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to study samples of rectal mucosa (the moist lining of the rectum) using a new light scattering technology, called partial wave spectroscopy (PWS) in patients who will undergo a standard of care colonoscopy or a flexible sigmoidoscopy and have a history of ulcerative colitis (UC).


Condition Intervention
Ulcerative Colitis
Colon Cancer
Procedure: PWS Testing

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Partial Wave Spectroscopic Detection of Colon Cancer Risk

Further study details as provided by University of Chicago:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Study samples of rectal mucosa (the moist lining of the rectum) using PWS. [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Samples will be collected and then shipped to Northwestern University for analysis using PWS. This is to assess accuracy of detecting the risk for colon cancer.


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA

A sample of rectal mucosa will be collected during the subject's standard of care colonoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy.


Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: March 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Main Study Group
All subjects who are undergoing a standard of care colonoscopy for flexible sigmoidoscopy and have a history of UC and agree to participate will be in the main study group.
Procedure: PWS Testing
Partial wave spectroscopy (PWS)has been developed to allow scientists to learn about any changes to the cells that may indicate a risk of developing colon cancer.

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this study is to study samples of rectal mucosa (the moist lining of the rectum) using a new light scattering technology, called partial wave spectroscopy (PWS)in patients who will undergo a colonoscopy or a flexible sigmoidoscopy and have a history of ulcerative colitis (UC). PWS has been recently developed to allow scientists to learn about any changes to the cells that may indicate a risk of developing colon cancer. We believe that the PWS test will more accurately detect the risk of colon cancer.
