Brief Summary:
To evaluate the performance of PillCam COLON 2 in regards to detection of patients with polyps where colonoscopy is considered as the gold standard reference.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Colonic Diseases Bowel Diseases Device: PillCam™ (Capsule Endoscopy) Colon 2 capsule Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Standard evaluation of subjects with suspected colon diseases includes endoscopic imaging by colonoscopy and radiology testing such as: air-contrast barium enema, abdominal/pelvic CT, or virtual colonoscopy.

The Given® Diagnostic System offers an alternative approach for endoscopic visualization of the colon. Advantages of the Given® Diagnostic System include the elimination of the need for conscious sedation, the minimally invasive, painless nature of the exam, and the ability to pursue normal daily activities immediately following the procedure . Furthermore, compared to standard colonoscopy, the Given® Diagnostic System may be more readily accepted by the subjects, thereby improving subjects' willingness to undergo a diagnostic evaluation of the colon and comply with colorectal cancer screening recommendations.

The PillCam™ SB capsule (formerly M2A® Capsule) that was cleared by the FDA- in August 2001 for small bowel evaluation has been ingested to date by more than 1,000,000 people worldwide and is well accepted by patients and physicians as well as the professional societies. However, adequate visualization of the colon cannot be achieved with the standard PillCam™ SB capsule because of the anatomical and physiological properties of the colon which are significantly different than the small bowel. Moreover, other issues that limit the evaluation of the colonic mucosa by the standard PillCam™ SB procedure include an unsatisfactory level of colon cleanliness and slow progression of the PillCam™ SB capsule through the colon during the desired examination time. Therefore, the development and introduction of a specially designed, customized colon capsule combined with a dedicated capsule colonoscopy procedure protocol will allow for more efficient evaluation of the colonic mucosa. This is expected to improve the capability of the Given® Diagnostic System to detect colonic pathologies and to serve as a diagnostic and screening tool for colonic disease. To date, several clinical studies have been conducted with Given® Diagnostic System and the PillCam™ Colon 1 capsule A pilot multicenter study is currently being conducted with a new Given® Diagnostic System and an advanced generation of the the PillCam™ Colon capsule - PillCam™ Colon 2. Capsule. The new development of Given® Diagnostic System and PillCam™ Colon 2 capsule is primarily aimed to increase sensitivity and specificity for polyp detection.

Further details of the Given® Diagnostic System and PillCam™ Colon 2 capsule can be found in the device description section.

This study is designed to evaluate the performance of the new version of Given® Diagnostic System and PillCam™ Colon 2 capsule in detecting patients with polyps and other colonic lesions as compared to conventional colonoscopy.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1
Subjects that are indicated for colonoscopy, who are suspected or known to suffer from large bowel diseases.
Device: PillCam™ (Capsule Endoscopy) Colon 2 capsule
Medical Device




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Sensitivity of Capsule Endoscopy for Indicated Polyps [ Time Frame: within 7 days ]
    Readings of videos from the PillCam COLON were performed by trained physicians who identified polyps (types and sizes). Sensitivity was calculated as the percentage of participants who had positive findings on capsule endoscopy (of a specified category) among those participants who had positive findings on colonoscopy of the same category .The false negative rate is equal to 1 - sensitivity and indicated the percentage of polyps missed by capsule endoscopy.

  2. Specificity of Capsule Endoscopy for Indicated Polyps [ Time Frame: within 7 days ]
    Readings of videos from the PillCam COLON were performed by trained physicians who identified polyps (types and sizes). Specificity was calculated as the percentage of participants who had negative findings on capsule endoscopy (of a specified category) among participants with negative colonoscopy findings of the same category (reported in Outcome Measure 1). This corresponds to 1 - the false positive rate.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent of Participants With Scoring Index 3 or 4 [ Time Frame: within 7 days ]

    Overall colon cleanliness was judged for capsule endoscopy and colonoscopy on a four-point grading index scale as follows:

    1. poor cleansing level (Large amount of fecal residue.)
    2. fair cleansing level (Enough feces or dark fluid present to preclude a completely reliable examination.)
    3. good cleansing level (Small amount of feces or dark fluid, but not enough to interfere with examination.)
    4. excellent cleansing level (No more than small bits of adherent feces.)
