New study identifies genetic changes in patients who progress to esophageal cancer
A scientific team who studies a precancerous condition of the esophagus (called Barrett’s esophagus or BE) are working to answer how to see genetic changes in cells before they turn cancerous. The team revealed that DNA changes in BE cells that presage esophageal cancer can be spotted years before cancer develops.
