European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy recommends capsule sponge testing for Barrett's esophagus

ESGE's has released new guidance for Barrett's esophagus screening and case finding

17 October 2023


The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) has published an update to the Barett's esophagus guidelines for diagnosis and management and highlighted the high-quality evidence for capsule sponge testing.

This officially sets out guidance for practitioners and patients on using non-endoscopic, minimally-invasive cell collection, like Cyted's EndoSign®, as an alternative to endoscopy that can proactively care for oesophageal health and find oesophageal cancer earlier.

Capsule Sponge Testing in Action

This minimally-invasive procedure collects cell samples from the entire length of the esophagus, which are then analyzed. Based on the test results, healthcare professionals can efficiently triage patients. Those with concerning findings can be prioritized for urgent endoscopy, while others can be more easily monitored on a regular basis, ensuring timely intervention when needed.
