Abstract

Rates of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) have increased rapidly in the United States and much of western Europe, and 5-year survival continues to be poor.1 Prevention and early detection efforts for EAC have focused on identifying persons with EAC precursor state, Barrett's esophagus, but the survival benefit has been disappointingly low.
