Sample text

In patients who did not progress to EAC copy number alterations did not significantly alter over timeÀhowever, in the 79 patients who did progress, the mean number of copy number alterations increased rapidly beginning approximately 24 months before EAC was diagnosed. Importantly, these patients with high structural variability were still histologically diagnosed as BE during this 24-month period and hence this gain of largescale genomic instability appears to be an important precursor step in the transition to EAC in many patients.

Frankell and Rebecca C. 1 INTRODUCTION Early detection and discovering better ways of predicting the course of the disease, particularly through understanding of the molecular genetics and developing biomarkers, is key to improving management of BE and thus survival from EAC. Barrett’s esophagus (BE) is the premalignant lesion for esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC): a malignancy with a very poor prognosis. The progression of BE from benign columnar-lined epithelium (CLE) to adenocarcinoma often occurs through a series of dysplastic stages termed low-grade dysplasia (LGD) and highgrade dysplasia (HGD).
