Esophagus

Esophageal adenocarcinoma risk in Barrett's esophagus is increased 30- to 125- fold versus the general population. Among all Barrett's esophagus patients neoplastic progression occurs only once per 200 patient-years. Molecular markers (individual or in panel) would be useful to risk-stratify patients for more efficient surveillance endoscopy and to improve the early detection of progression.

Promoter hypermethylation of TAC1 occurs early in both major types of human esophageal carcinoma, and is a potential biomarker of poor prognosis in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. Studies are ongoing.
