OTJA10 – Final Assessment report and related documents are now available

On May 4, 2020, EUnetHTA started an “Error reporting and correction” procedure for this OTJA10 assessment report on “Stool DNA testing for early detection of colorectal cancer”. The reported potential error is under assessment by EUnetHTA and the Assessment Team. You can find further information about the potential error and its impact on the report soon on this website.

We are pleased to announce that the final assessment report for OTJA10 ‘Stool DNA testing for early detection of colorectal cancer’, together with the fact check comments from manufacturers and comments from external experts including the replies of the author, are now available for access.

The health technology assessed is a non-invasive device for the early detection of colorectal cancer that supplements the established fecal occult blood tests with the stool-based analysis of tumor DNA. The objective of this assessment was to evaluate whether Stool DNA testing (alone or in addition to occult blood testing) in adult patients from a colorectal cancer screening population is more effective and/or safer than other available colorectal cancer screening tests.
