Free Video for Health Care Providers and Patients Who are Preparing for a Colonoscopy Is Now Available at www.TriLyte.com
Date:2/24/2009

ATLANTA, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- A new video to help health care providers prepare patients for a colonoscopy is now available free of charge from the company that makes TriLyte(R) (PEG-3350, sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate and potassium chloride for oral solution) with flavor packs, (www.TriLyte.com), which is indicated for bowel cleansing prior to a colonoscopy.

The video provides guidance to patients who are preparing for a colonoscopy by explaining the importance of cleaning the bowels prior to the procedure. It details how to mix and complete the preparation at home, provides a diagram of the procedure, and explains what a physician might do during the exam, and what happens after the procedure is finished.

"Often there is a temptation for patients to take shortcuts when preparing for a colonoscopy, due to the time it takes to complete the process or the taste of the solution," said Dr. Virinder Nohria of Alaven Pharmaceutical, LLC. "TriLyte has five flavor packs for the patient to select from to improve the taste, and now this short video will help patients understand why it is so important to complete their preparation for their colonoscopy. A physician needs to visualize the entire length of colon, and proper patient preparation is key to obtaining the most thorough colonoscopy possible."

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in men and in women in the United States. Colon cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. About 112,000 people are diagnosed with colon cancer and about 41,000 new cases of rectal cancer are diagnosed each year according to the American Cancer Society(1).

The death rate from colorectal cancer has been dropping for the past 15 years because polyps are being found by screening colonoscopies before they can develop into cancers. There are approximately one million survivors of colorectal cancer in the United States, and this number continues to grow(1).

According to Dr. Virinder Nohria, patient compliance is one of the most important aspects of an accurate colonoscopy.

"Thorough preparation prior to a colonoscopy helps prevent the need for repeat examinations due to errors," said Dr. Nohria. "This simple and instructive video provides the patient with the right information and can be accessed by a health care provider or patient anywhere, anytime."

To watch the video, to order it on CD, or for full prescribing information, please visit www.TriLyte.com, or call 888-317-0001.
