Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years and Over|
Inclusion criteria:- Non-pedunculated type 0 lesions in Paris classification (not obvious cancers) - Lesions larger than 10 mm Exclusion criteria are: - Lesions assessed as JNET 1 by the endoscopist or serrated by the pathologist - Previous biopsy or resection attempt - Previous CT, MR or USE - Unavailable histology - Inflammatory bowel disease - Informed consent not obtained - Protocol violation
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

A video with the lesion assessment, without any data on the patient, will be recorded in a device connected to the processor provided by the Principal Investigator. The name of the file will be the record ID. All the lesions will be tested by the same endoscopist in vivo and an assistant will fulfill the data collection sheet during the colonoscopy. First, the lesions will be cleaned and observed in a stable position. Size, location, morphology, demarcated areas, and gross morphological malignant features will be evaluated. Based on these WLE characteristics, a deep invasion prediction will be performed (control test). Second, the lesion will be assessed using NBI with near focus or magnification or BLI with magnification. A second cleaning with pronase (or N-acetylcysteine if pronase is not available) if the surface cannot be clearly observed because of the presence of mucus or if crystal violet is going to be used. Crystal violet 0.05% will be used in case of polyps type 2B in the JNET classification or lesions with a demarcated area. A non-traumatic catheter (or spray catheter) will be used to spray the crystal violet over the lesion. A final prediction of deep invasion will be performed for NBI or BLI ± CE (test evaluated). The use of a cap to observe the bottom of the lesion, fix the lesion close to the endoscope or to observe the lesion underwater immersion is strongly recommended. The resection technique will be decided upon according to the local experience. In case of endoscopy resection (cold snare, EMR, ESD, full thickness), lesions will be removed via the anus (not through the endoscopy channel) in order to preserve their integrity. Although EMR is performed, if possible, lesions will be referred to the pathologist well oriented and pinned out on a cork based, as is standard procedure in ESD. In order to ensure that endoscopic assessment is performed before the histology evaluation, both diagnostic assessments (control test and test evaluated) will be recorded on the REDCap database on the day of the colonoscopy. REDCap records the time and date of all changes in the variables' results. The remaining variables (demographic data, etc.) will be recorded on the data collection sheet and copied later into REDCap. Videos of the lesion assessments will be sent to the Principal Investigator. Centralized visualization will be conducted to detect protocol violations and to exclude lesions from the study. A blinded histology assessment will be conducted by the local pathologist and if a carcinoma with submucosal invasion is diagnosed, histology slides will be referred for an additional blinded and centralized histology evaluation at the end of the study. Pathologists participating in the histological phase will assess all the slides with submucosal invasion and will collect the histological factors associated with lymph node metastasis. Finally, investigators participating in the translational phase will refer paraffin blocks of 10 lesions of each JNET category (2A, 2B and 3) for genetic tests (sequencing of a panel of 45 genes and analysis of alterations in the number of copies of the genome).
