High Accuracy FOB Rapid Test Cassette Plays an Important Role in the Diagnosis of Colorectal Cancer

Zhang Lei*, Yang Feng and Zhu Junzhe

Background: The FOB Rapid Test Cassette (Feces) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of Human Occult Blood in feces. It plays an important role in the preliminary diagnosis of Colorectal Cancer. In 2020, colorectal cancer was the third most common cancer and cancer-related death in the United States [1]. Many new treatment methods have been developed and their use in combination with advances in diagnostic methods has led to improvement in treatment results [1]. Therefore, FOB Rapid Test Cassette has an important effect in early diagnosis of Colorectal Cancer. Before accessing medical treatment in the hospital, patients can use FOB Rapid Test Cassette to detect colorectal cancer so that it can be detected and treated early.

Many factors may cause colorectal cancer. Obesity is an established risk factor for colorectal cancer development and is invariably characterized by deregulated metabolism, such as insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, hyperglycaemia, and Type 2 diabetes [2]. To analyse the factors that cause colorectal cancer, there are methods to help prevent colon cancer at its root.

Objective: To evaluate the significance of the CITEST FOB Rapid Test Cassette in early diagnosis of colorectal cancer.

Method: Run a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Human Occult Blood in feces and compare with a leading commercial FOB test using clinical specimens for validation of performance.

Results: The compared test results show that the overall relative sensitivity of CITEST FOB Rapid Test Cassette is 95%, relative specificity is 99.5% and accuracy is 98.6%.

Conclusion: In conclusion, the CITEST FOB Rapid Test Cassette has high sensitivity, high specificity and high accuracy which play an important role in early diagnosis of colorectal cancer.

This product is easy to operate and gives results within 5 minutes. Patients can use this test for earlier detection of colorectal cancer
