El grupo de trabajo de oncología de la Asociación Española de Gastroenterología (AEG) incluye a todos los socios y socias de AEG que comparten su interés por el conocimiento del cáncer gastrointestinal, incluyendo las formas hereditarias y de alto riesgo asociadas a estos tumores. La filosofía del grupo es promover la investigación colaborativa, impulsar las actividades formativas y fomentar la docencia relacionada con esta área de la especialidad de Aparato Digestivo.

To evaluate the effect of aspirin and nonaspirin antiplatelet agents (NAAAs) on the performance of the fecal immunochemical test (FIT).
PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS:
We performed a post hoc analysis of results from a clinical trial that involved 28,696 asymptomatic average-risk men and women aged 50 to 69 years invited to participate in a colorectal cancer screening program with FIT between November 1, 2008, and June 31, 2011.
The test was returned by 6390 individuals (22.3%), of whom 5821 (91.1%) reported not using antiplatelet drugs (nonusers group) and 569 (8.9%) reported using these drugs at the time of testing (users group). The FIT result was positive in 48 of 569 users (8.4%) and 365 of 5821 nonusers (6.3%) (P=.05). A positive FIT result was found in 7.3% (28/384) of aspirin users, 7.1% (10/140) of NAAA users, and 22.2% (10/45) of those undergoing dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) (aspirin plus an NAAA). The DAPT subgroup had a significantly higher positive FIT rate than the nonuser group (odds ratio, 3.5; 95% CI, 1.7-7.3; P<.05). The positive predictive value (PPV) for advanced neoplasia (AN) in nonusers was 50.4% vs 50.0% in users (P = .40). The PPV for AN was 57.0% in aspirin users, 30.0% in NAAA users, and 50.0% in DAPT users, without statistically significant differences between the user and nonuser groups. CONCLUSION: The use of DAPT increased the rate of positive FIT results. Use of aspirin, NAAAs, or both did not modify the PPV for AN in this population-based colorectal screening program.
