Cytosponge clinical trial recruits ten-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 ten-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.
