The homeobox gene, Cdx2, is a key regulator of development and proliferation of intestinal epithelium, directly activating intestine specific genes and exerting anti-proliferative and pro-differentiating effects in vitro. Authors have shown that Cdx2 is neo-expressed in Barrett's metaplasia (BM) and that progression to malignancy is associated with down regulation at Cdx2.1 Authors aimed to examine the effect of microenvironmental changes seen in gastro-oesophageal reflux disease upon Cdx2 expression in a columnar cell model of BM. Acid and bile act synergistically cause down regulation of Cdx2 in a columnar cell model of BM.

    It was recently reported that factor H, a regulatory component of the alternative complement pathway, is stored with von Willebrand factor (VWF) in the Weibel-Palade bodies of endothelial cells. If this were to be the case, it would have therapeutic importance for patients with the atypical...
