NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

Published Studies Related to Halflytely (Polyethylene Glycol)

Reduced cathartic bowel preparation for CT colonography: prospective comparison of 2-L polyethylene glycol and magnesium citrate. [2011.10]
PURPOSE: To prospectively compare adequacy of colonic cleansing, adequacy of solid stool and fluid tagging, and patient acceptance by using reduced-volume, 2-L polyethylene glycol (PEG) versus magnesium citrate bowel preparations for CT colonography... CONCLUSION: Reduced-volume PEG and magnesium citrate bowel preparations demonstrated adequate cleansing effectiveness for CT colonography, with better tagging and shorter interpretation time observed in the PEG group. Adequate polyp detection was maintained but requires further validation because of the small number of clinically important polyps. (c) RSNA, 2011.

Effect of bowel preparation with polyethylene glycol on quality of capsule endoscopy. [2011.06]
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Capsule endoscopy (CE) has the problem that lumen visualization is impaired by bubbles, bile, and debris. The benefits of bowel preparation are still controversial and the best method remains to be determined. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of the method of bowel preparation on the quality of visualization and on transit time... CONCLUSIONS: Bowel preparation with PEG resulted in better image quality than fasting alone. No significant difference was observed between 2 and 4 l. PEG 2 l rather than 4 l may be a useful method of preparation for CE.

Low-volume bowel preparation is inferior to standard 4 1 polyethylene glycol. [2011.03]
BACKGROUND: Four liters or more of orally taken polyethylene glycol solution (PEG) has proved to be an effective large-bowel cleansing method prior to colonoscopy. The problem has been the large volume of fluid and its taste, which is unacceptable to some examinees. We aimed to investigate the effectiveness of 2 l PEG combined with senna compared with 4 l PEG for bowel preparation... CONCLUSIONS: 4 l PEG treatment is better than 36 mg senna and 2 l PEG as routine colonic cleansing before colonoscopy because of fewer failures.

Comparison of the effectiveness of polyethylene glycol 4000 without electrolytes and magnesium hydroxide in the treatment of chronic functional constipation in children. [2011.01]
OBJECTIVE: To compare the effectiveness of two drugs, polyethylene glycol 4000 without electrolytes and magnesium hydroxide, in the treatment of chronic functional constipation in children... CONCLUSION: The two laxatives showed no difference in effectiveness for the treatment of constipation. However, due to its better acceptance, because it is odorless and tasteless, polyethylene glycol proved to be a better option for treating chronic functional constipation.

The effects of polyethylene glycosylated creatine supplementation on muscular strength and power. [2010.12]
The purpose of the present investigation was to examine the effects of 28 days of polyethylene glycosylated creatine (PEG-creatine) supplementation on 1-repetition maximum bench press (1RMBP) and leg extension (1RMLE), mean power (MP), and peak power (PP) from the Wingate Anaerobic test and body weight (BW)...

Investigation of PicoPrep Versus HalfLytely for Bowel Preparation for Colonoscopy - Split Dose PicoPrep [Recruiting]
Subjects undergoing an elective complete colonoscopy will randomly receive either PicoPrep:

2-sachets for oral solution in two divided doses given a night before (first dose - sachet)

and approximately 5 hours prior to procedure (second dose - sachet) or HalfLytely: for oral

solution and two 5 mg Bisacodyl tablets, given the day before the procedure to evaluate its effectiveness, tolerability and safety.

Investigation of PicoPrep Versus HalfLytely for Bowel Preparation for Colonoscopy - Day Before PicoPrep [Recruiting]
Subjects undergoing an elective complete colonoscopy will randomly receive either PicoPrep:

2-sachets for oral solution in two divided doses given in the afternoon (first dose -

sachet) and 6 hours later in the evening (second dose - sachet), given the day before the

procedure or HalfLytely: for oral solution and two 5 mg Bisacodyl tablets, given the day before the procedure to evaluate its effectiveness, tolerability and safety.
