    OBJECTIVE:The normal histology at the gastroesophageal junction, and in particular the nature of cardiac mucosa, remains in dispute. Likewise, the relationship of intestinal metaplasia at the gastroesophageal junction (CIM) to Barrett’s and intestinal metaplasia of the stomach (GIM) is...

    Barrett's esophagus is diagnosed when goblet cells are found in the lower esophageal mucosa. However, the distribution of these cells is patchy and they may not represent the earliest marker of intestinal metaplasia. Cdx2 is a transcription factor whose expression in normal tissues is restricted...

    OBJECTIVE: Intestinal metaplasia of the gastroesophageal junction is frequently grouped together with Barrett's esophagus. The area of the gastroesophageal junction is comprised of the distal esophagus and the gastric cardia. The aim of the present study was to assess whether intestinal...

    Introduction: Recently, we showed that the length of cardiac mucosa in healthy volunteers correlated with age and obesity. We have now examined the immunohistological characteristics of this expanded cardia to determine whether it may be due to columnar metaplasia of the distal oesophagus....

    Background: Intestinal Metaplasia within a Columnar Lined Oesophagus (Barrett's Oesophagus) is believed to be pre-malignant. At present it is not clear how best to diagnose this condition reliably when encountered at endoscopy. Objectives: We aimed to assess the frequency and distribution of...

    Long segment Barrett's esophagus (LSBE) is a recognized risk factor for the development of esophageal dysplasia and carcinoma. However, the risk of dysplasia arising within intestinal metaplasia below a normal-appearing Z-line (i.e., in native cardiac mucosa) is unknown. Regular endoscopic...

    The formation of goblet cells characterizes the intestinal metaplasia of Barrett's esophagus (BE). Hematoxylin-eosin (HE) staining may fail to show intestinal metaplasia in BE, and PAS-Alcian Blue may present difficulties of interpretation due to its more heterogeneous staining. Recent evidence...
