ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study which noted whether regular use of low-dose aspirin affects the accuracy of fecal immunochemical tests (FITs) for detecting colorectal neoplasia. The study was conducted by researcher H. Brenner and colleagues, and was published in a 2010 issue of the "Journal of American Medical Association." The study concluded that fecal immunochemical tests were associated with greater sensitivity for detecting colorectal neoplasia in aspirin users than in nonusers.
