Despite recent advances in surgical and multidisciplinary treatment, prognosis for patients with esophageal adenocarcinoma remains poor, and the low prognostic significance of pTNM staging suggests that additional parameters are needed. To identify genomic abnormalities characteristic of esophageal adenocarcinoma, a panel of 33 samples obtained at surgery from previously untreated patients were analyzed by muliplex ligation-dependent probe amplification technique. We detected frequent gains of… CONTINUE READING
