- Acid Suppression and Adenocarcinoma of the Esophagus: Cause or Cure? Schell, Thomas G. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Oct2004, Vol. 99 Issue 10, p1884
In this issue El-Seraget al. present a retrospective study which shows that patients with Barrett's esophagus and no dysplasia who were prescribed PPIs had a lesser rate of developing dysplasia than patients who were not prescribed PPIs. Acid suppression has been proposed both as a cause and a...

- Perioperative chemotherapy improved survival in resectable adenocarcinoma of the stomach or lower esophagus. Abbruzzese, James L. // ACP Journal Club;Jan/Feb2007, Vol. 146 Issue 1, p2
The article cites a study on the treatment of patients with resectable gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma, which was conducted by medical researcher D. Cunningham and colleagues. The study was concerned with the use of surgery plus perioperative chemotherapy, and surgery alone, for the treatment of...

Objective: We described incidence rates of esophageal adenocarcinoma in Denmark in a 20-yr period and determined the proportion of patients diagnosed with esophageal adenocarcinoma who had a previous diagnosis of Barrett's esophagus, making them potential candidates for endoscopic surveillance....
