Barrett’s Esophagus Early Detection Study

The Barrett’s Esophagus Early Detection Study was initiated in 2006, with the primary goal of identifying a practical blood-based biomarker to distinguish persons with Barrett’s esophagus (BE) from those without it. This BE case-control study is being conducted at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, among Barrett’s Esophagus Registry patients and non-BE patients who have endoscopies in the Gastroenterology Clinic.
