05/15/2011 - "A higher detection rate for colorectal cancer and advanced adenomatous polyp for screening with immunochemical fecal occult blood test than guaiac fecal occult blood test, despite lower compliance rate. "
03/01/2000 - "This study was conducted to assess the diagnostic validity of new different immunochemical fecal occult blood tests for colorectal adenomatous polyps, including reversed passive hemagglutination test (Immudia-HemSp), combination monoclonal antibody guaiac test (Monohaem), latex agglutination inhibition test (Iatro Hemcheck), and latex agglutination tests (LA Hemochaser, OC-Hemodia). "
11/27/2015 - "1) use of Guaiac and/or immunochemical fecal occult blood test as screening-tests for the detection of colorectal cancer and/or colon polyps (1 cm or more in diameter) in people older than 45 years; 2) comparing of results with the results of colonoscopy (colonoscopy is counted by majority of the authors as a "gold standard" for the diagnosis of CRC and adenomatous polyps). "
10/03/2007 - "One type of fecal occult blood test (FOBT), the unrehydrated guaiac fecal occult blood test (GT), is recommended by the United States Preventive Services Task Force and the Institute of Medicine for use in screening programs, but it has relatively low sensitivity as a single test for detecting advanced colonic neoplasms (cancer and adenomatous polyps > or = 1 cm in diameter). "
05/01/1988 - "From 1979 to 1982, 1233 symptom-free subjects at high risk for colon cancer because of family history and/or personal history of bowel neoplasia (cancer or adenomatous polyp) were examined with a guaiac test (Hemoccult II) for occult blood in stools. "
