Summary of "Recent Advances in Screening for Barrett's Esophagus."

PURPOSE OF
REVIEW:
There is a pressing need for effective strategies to halt the increase in both the incidence and mortality of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). Screening for Barrett's esophagus, which is the only known precursor of EAC, remains a ripe area for research, particularly with regard to identifying the target population, screening tools, and management of screen-detected populations. This review aims to explore in depth the rationale for screening for Barrett's esophagus, recent biotechnological advances which may have the potential of making screening feasible, and also highlight the challenges which will have to be overcome in order make screening for BE a realistic prospect.

Acceptability, Accuracy and Safety of Disposable Transnasal Capsule Endoscopy for Barrett's Esophagus Screening.

Screening for Barrett's esophagus (BE) with conventional esophagogastroduodenoscopy (C-EGD) is expensive. We assessed the performance of a clinic-based, single use transnasal capsule endoscope (EG Sca...

Screening for Barrett's Esophagus: Are New High-Volume Methods Feasible?

New improved methods are required for the early detection of esophageal adenocarcinoma in order to reduce mortality from this aggressive cancer. In this review we discuss different screening methods w...

Some observations on Barrett esophagus and associated dysplasia.

Biopsy samples from esophageal columnar metaplasia and dysplasia are commonly encountered in Western pathology practice and knowing a few pitfalls can save both pathologists and patients a great deal ...

Association of Vitamin D and Parathyroid Hormone With Barrett's Esophagus.

Esophageal adenocarcinoma has been inversely associated with exposure to ultraviolet radiation. This could be because of vitamin D deficiency or hyperparathyroidism promoting gastroesophageal reflux d...

Inter-institutional variations regarding Barrett's esophagus diagnosis.

Barrett's esophagus (BE) is a known precursor for development of esophageal adenocarcinoma and surveillance of affected patients is necessary when cancer progression risk is considered to be high. How...

RATIONALE: A tethered capsule endoscope may be as effective as standard sedated endoscopy of the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum in screening for Barrett esophagus. PURPOSE: This phase I...

Acid Reflux and Stromal Fibroblasts in Barrett's Esophagus

Patients with Barrett's Esophagus are known to have excessive distal esophageal acid exposure comparable to patients with erosive esophagitis. A significant proportion of patients with BE ...

Minimally-Invasive Detection of Barrett's Esophagus and Barrett's Esophagus Related Dysplasia/Carcinoma

This study will evaluate if the capsule sponge device can detect the presence of Barrett's Esophagus

Predict Recurrence of Barrett's Esophagus After Complete Eradication of Intestinal Metaplasia

Researchers are trying to see if the Nvision® Imaging System (VLE) can accurately determine the risk of recurrent Barrett's esophagus in patients with Barrett's esophagus which have been ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition with damage to the lining of the lower ESOPHAGUS resulting from chronic acid reflux (ESOPHAGITIS, REFLUX). Through the process of metaplasia, the squamous cells are replaced by a columnar epithelium with cells resembling those of the INTESTINE or the salmon-pink mucosa of the STOMACH. Barrett's columnar epithelium is a marker for severe reflux and precursor to ADENOCARCINOMA of the esophagus.
