Immunohistochemical mucin expression of short-segment Barrett's esophagus.

Abstract

Barrett's mucosa consists of metaplastic columnar epithelium (specialized columnar epithelium) of the esophagus. Recently, "short-segment Barrett's esophagus (SSBE)" was proposed. In the present study, we examined immunohistochemical mucin expression and the Ki-67 labeling index (LI) of SSBE, in 5-15 mm lengths. All 27 SSBE cases showed gastric mucin… (More)
