Brief Summary:
Development of a new diagnostic detection tool for gastrointestinal bleeding.

Condition or disease
Gastrointestinal Bleeding

Detailed Description:
Literature does not support enough data/knowledge regarding stomach bleeding Hb levels in pathological situations and/or stomach bleeding levels following biopsy. It is important to understand the approximate concentration level of stomach bleeding before proceeding with technology development to insure this technology is capable of detecting such blood levels.
