PURPOSE OF REVIEW There is a clinical need for biomarkers that can improve diagnostic accuracy and risk stratification of esophageal lesions. Here we review the current literature and highlight the most important, recent advancements in biomarkers as a supplement to histopathology for management of patients with Barrett's esophagus. RECENT FINDINGS A(More)
Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) develops in an inflammatory microenvironment with reduced microbial diversity, but mechanisms for these influences remain poorly characterized. We hypothesized that mutations targeting the Toll-like receptor (TLR) pathway could disrupt innate immune signaling and promote a microenvironment that favors tumorigenesis. Through(More)
