Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Gastric juices content suctioned from patients routinely during the course of Gastroscopy.

Enrollment: 5
Study Start Date: January 2011
Study Completion Date: December 2011
Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
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.
