Cytosponge clinical trial recruits thousandth patient

Professor Rebecca Fitzgerald, whose lab has developed the innovative Cytosponge, was interviewed on BBC TV on Friday 7th September following the recruitment of the thousandth participant in the national BEST3 clinical trial of the device in GP surgeries, funded by Cancer Research UK. The device is a non-invasive test for Barrett's oesophagus, a condition that can increase a person's chance of developing oesophageal cancer. The video illustrates exactly how the simple device works.
