Effect of proton pump inhibitors on markers of risk for high-grade dysplasia and oesophageal cancer in Barrett's oesophagus
Background: It has been shown that the presence on diagnosis of endoscopic macroscopic markers indicates a high-risk group for Barrett's oesophagus. Aim: To determine whether proton pump inhibitor therapy prior to diagnosis of Barrett's oesophagus influences markers for risk development of subsequent high-grade dysplasia/adenocarcinoma. Methods: A review of all patients with Barrett's oesophagus entering a surveillance programme was undertaken. Five hundred and two patients diagnosed with...[Show more]
