We have not identified clinical trials or systematic reviews comparing FIT vs gFOBT in terms of other health effects or clinical conditions not included in the project scope and requiring subsequent clinical management decisions. Therefore no direct evidence on other potential health conditions comparing FIT vs gFOBT in the context of a population based colorectal cancer screening program is available.
