Abstract: Since the 1970's, the incidence of adenocarcinoma in Barret's esophagus has increased more rapidly than that of any other cancer in the United States. The accesibility of the esophagus, the safety of obtaining mucosal biopsies for analyses, and the ability to repeat biopsies and analyses over time makes Barret's esophagus a potentially manageable problem, as well as a useful model of multistage carcinogenesis.
