A brush-sampling fecal immunochemical test for hemoglobin (FIT) was shown to be more sensitive for cancers and significant adenomas than a sensitive guaiac-based fecal occult blood test (GFOBT) in a paired comparison involving 2512 people who underwent screening or diagnostic colonoscopy. Such FIT should deliver greater reductions in colorectal cancer mortality and incidence than GFOBT.
