Rehydration of guaiac-based faecal occult blood tests in mass screening for colorectal cancer : an economic perspective.
Owing to dehydration during storage, faecal occult blood tests have been found to lose sensitivity: accordingly, test rehydration before development has been advocated, although this practice has yet to be subjected to an economic evaluation.
In this paper, the results from two major screening trials in Sweden and England, oneusing rehydration and the other not, are so evaluated, based on a costing model developed within the English trial.
