Cytokeratin subsets for distinguishing barrett's esophagus from intestinal metaplasia in the cardia using endoscopic biopsy specimens


OBJECTIVES:It has been suggested that Barrett's epithelium and intestinal metaplasia in the gastric cardia have different cyotokeratin (CK) staining patterns and that Barrett's epithelium can be distinguished by CK staining pattern. The aim of this study was to test the utility of CK staining for distinguishing Barrett's esophagus from gastric intestinal… (More)
