NOSCAR announces 2008 NOTES Research Award winners
Date:9/11/2008

OAK BROOK, Ill., September 12, 2008 The Natural Orifice Surgery Consortium for Assessment and Research (NOSCAR), a joint effort of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES), announce the 2008 NOSCAR Research Award winners. The funds, granted through Olympus Medical Systems' Olympus Research Fund and by KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, Inc., will be distributed among 14 grant recipients supporting 16 research projects in the emerging transdisciplinary therapy known as Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES), an approach that could ultimately represent a major paradigm shift in minimally invasive therapy and patient care. NOSCAR received 32 grant applications for the $750,000 in research funds.

"We received an outstanding response for research funding reflecting the momentum this revolutionary technique has created," said Michael L. Kochman, MD, FASGE, NOSCAR Research Subcommittee co-chair. "These grant recipients are conducting research that is pointing us to the next phase in the evolution of the NOTES procedure, which is multicenter human studies."

The first NOSCAR Research Awards were announced in 2006. Since that time, 56 grants have been awarded. Recipients of the 2008 awards are conducting research in both animal models and humans. Past NOSCAR Research Award winners recently presented data from their projects at the 3rd International Conference on NOTES held in San Francisco, Calif., July 10-12, 2008. Presentations included research on improving patient safety and multidisciplinary team efficiency, the physiologic and immunologic impact of NOTES, drainage of abdominal abscess, and gastric leak testing, among others.

"NOSCAR is grateful to Olympus Medical Systems and KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America for supporting NOTES research and helping to advance this minimally invasive technique," said Steven Schwaitzberg, MD, NOSCAR Re
