  1. Fecal occult blood tests : A cost-effectiveness analysis.

    Article - En anglais

    A range of fecal occult blood tests are presently on the market and could potentially be used in population screening programs for the detection of colorectal neoplasms.

    This paper estimates the relative cost-effectiveness of alternative tests and concludes that the unhydrated Hemoccult II is the most cost-effective.

    However, the incremental costs per life-year of the HemeSelect test and the rehydrated Hemoccult II test are in line with incremental costs observed in breast cancer and cervical cancer programs.
