Colorectal Cancer

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men and women in the United States, and kills over 50,000 people annually. Colorectal cancer can be prevented by getting screened.

Historically, one of the obstacles of getting a screening colonoscopy has been the bad taste and tolerability of the colonoscopy prep, which must be taken prior to the procedure. Dark Canyon Labs has developed a new colonoscopy prep, DCL-101, which is a taste-free pill prep. A Phase 2 clinical trial was successfully completed, with Phase 3 to begin in the near future.

Dark Canyon Labs is determined to make a safe and effective taste-free pill prep available for patients. Our goal is to make the process of prepping for a colonoscopy much easier and to increase colonoscopy screening rates, thereby saving lives. Get screened and prevent colorectal cancer!
