The BowelScope ADENOMA trial (BADENOMA) is a study of the effectiveness of a device in improving detection of colorectal adenomas in patients attending for flexible sigmoidoscopy screening. This RCT had a recruitment target of 3,222 patients with a planned end date of July 2018. Sixteen sites around England were involved in recruitment, which stopped in November 2017 because the target had already been met. This is one of the largest endoscopy RCTs ever and the recruitment curve is phenomenal. This is due to the fantastic work of the research team and the brilliant network of world leading endoscopy research we have in the UK. The results of this trial are awaited with interest.
