FoodMarble AIRE Shown to Exceed the Performance of ‘Gold Standard’ SIBO Testing in Clinical Trial

SIBO is a very common disorder where there are excessive bacteria present in the small intestine. The true prevalence of SIBO in the general population is largely unknown, with some studies estimating its occurrence in up to 15% of healthy individuals. It is also largely associated with many other common clinical conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome, where 40-80% of IBS patients have SIBO.

SMART Medical Systems Ltd., a developer and manufacturer of innovative endoscopy products, announced a strategic distribution partnership empowering Fujifilm to commercialize SMART’s G-EYE® endoscope in Europe.

The G-EYE® endoscope is a conventional colonoscope onto which SMART’s G-EYE® balloon is integrated. Withdrawal of the G-EYE® endoscope in the colon with the balloon moderately inflated centralizes the image in the colon lumen and flattens colonic folds. This effect is designed to provide enhanced visualization of the colon and was proven in numerous clinical studies to enable a substantial increase in the detection of cancerous polyps which are the precursors of colon cancer (e.g., GIE Vol.89, No.3, 2019, p545-553).

The flagship product to be commercialized under the new partnership is the G-EYE® 760R colonoscope, integrating the G-EYE® Balloon Technology with Fujifilm’s ELUXEO system, and yielding a highly optimized colonoscopy system for screening, diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopy.

“Our new partnership with Fujifilm is a solid and strategic relation substantiating our common efforts of making the G-EYE® balloon endoscope available to more hospitals and practitioners, starting in Europe,” said Gadi Terliuc, SMART’s CEO. “We are excited to make the product available by Fujifilm and gain market share with a clear focus on colonoscopy.”
