In this exclusive video, Douglas K. Rex, MD, from Indiana University, discusses the recent FDA approval of Sutab, a sulphate-based tablet for colonoscopy preparation.

Rex said the tablet form of sodium sulphate gives an alternative to high-volume liquid preps, which often draw complaints from patients.

In two trials, the tablet prep (Sebela Pharmacaueticals) helped more than 90% of patients achieve successful bowel cleansing, and it was well-tolerated.
