Prevalence of metaplasia at the gastro-oesophageal junction
It is concluded that adults frequently have unrecognised segments of SCE at the gastro-oesophageal junction; this may underlie the rising frequency of cancer of the gastrooesophagal junction in the USA and Europe. Expand
Observer variation in the diagnosis of dysplasia in Barrett's esophagus.
It is concluded that experienced gastrointestinal morphologists can diagnose high-grade dysplasia and intramucosal carcinoma with a high degree of agreement and thus can detect those patients who may need immediate rebiopsy or esophageal resection. Expand
Clinical, biological, and histologic parameters as predictors of relapse in ulcerative colitis.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic relapsing inflammatory bowel disease. We aimed to assess whether clinical, biological, and histologic parameters in quiescent UC predict time toExpand
Eosinophilic esophagitis in children: immunopathological analysis and response to fluticasone propionate.
EE is characterized by immunologically active esophageal mucosa and FP, not DR, effectively relieves symptoms, and FP significantly reduces mucosal inflammation associated with EE. Expand
Diagnosis of brain death using two-phase spiral CT.
In brain death, the pericallosal and terminal arteries of the cortex did not opacify during the two phases of spiral CT, whereas the superficial temporal arteries were always visible. Expand

Eosinophils in the Esophagus—Peptic or Allergic Eosinophilic Esophagitis? Case Series of Three Patients with Esophageal Eosinophilia
Large numbers of eosinophils can be seen in peptic esophagitis, and this histologic finding must be interpreted in the context of the clinical setting in which it is obtained. Expand
Differentiating Ulcerative Colitis from Crohn Disease in Children and Young Adults: Report of a Working Group of the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition
Background: Studies of pediatric inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have varied in the criteria used to classify patients as having Crohn disease (CD), ulcerative colitis (UC), or indeterminate colitisExpand
Polypoid dysplasia and adenomas in inflammatory bowel disease: a clinical, pathologic, and follow-up study of 89 polyps from 59 patients.
This study evaluated the clinical presentation, pathologic features, and natural history of polypoid dysplastic lesions and sporadic adenomas in patients with IBD to determine whether there are clinical, endoscopic, or pathologic findings useful in differentiating between these two lesions. Expand
Phenotype of Barrett's Esophagus and Intestinal Metaplasia of the Distal Esophagus and Gastroesophageal Junction: An Immunohistochemical Study of Cytokeratins 7 and 20, Das-1 and 45MI
The immunophenotypic features of SSBE and IMGEJ are similar and closely resemble those seen in classic LSBE, but are distinct from IMGA. Expand
