Primary Outcome Measures:
  • the proportion of patients with successful colon cleansing as judged by blinded reviewers on the basis of videotapes recorded during the colonoscopy [the blinded reviewers will grade the colon cleansing only once] [ Time Frame: 1 day ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • the proportion of patients with successful colon cleansing as judged by the colonoscopist, the colonic segment cleansing score as assessed by the colonoscopist and the blinded reviewers and Aronchick global score as assessed by blinded reviewers. [ Time Frame: 1 day ]

Enrollment: 400
Study Start Date: May 2007
Study Completion Date: December 2007
Primary Completion Date: December 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Drug: MOVIPREP
2L Drug
Active Comparator: 2 Drug: COLOPEG

Detailed Description:

Primary efficacy analysis will be performed on the ITT population. Secondary efficacy analysis will be performed on both ITT and PP sets. Results will be summarised by treatment and age (overall, 18-35, 36-49, 50-74 and 75-85 years old) and provided in individual data listings.

Safety analysis will be performed on the safety set (ITT population). Safety data of all patients exposed will be summarised by treatment and age (overall, 18-35, 36-49, 50-74 and 75-85 years old).

Acceptability analysis will be performed on the ITT population. Acceptability data of all patients will be summarised by treatment and age (overall, 18-35, 36-49, 50-74 and 75-85 years old).
