This article focuses on a study related to pathology detection and patient age in open access and "target wait" endoscopy. Two week or target referrals for patients suspected to have a malignancy have been suggested to complicate endoscopy referral practices with little benefit to the patient and provide a back door for inappropriate referrals. Target wait referrals had a lower DNA rate and higher pathology detection rate than either all patients referred for open access endoscopy or those referred urgently into the endoscopy service.

    OBJECTIVE:Most studies show protective effects of non-steroidal anti-inflamatory drugs (NSAIDs) against polyps and colorectal cancers (CRCs) of up to 50%. Current models are unable to directly estimate changes in effects of chemoprevention on CRCs. The purpose is to develop a model to examine...
