Cancer incidence and mortality risks in a large US Barrett’s oesophagus cohort

Read the article: linkTo cite: Cook MB, Coburn SB, Lam JR, et al. Gut 2018;67:418-529.

Objective: Barrett's oesophagus (BE) increases the risk of oesophageal adenocarcinoma by 10–55 times that of the general population, but no community-based cancer-specific incidence and cause-specific mortality risk estimates exist for large cohorts in the USA.

Conclusions: Patients with BE had a persistent excess risk of oesophageal adenocarcinoma over time, although their absolute excess risks for this cancer, any cancer and overall mortality were modest.
