barette's oesophagus

F Bartels, H-J Hahn, M Stolte, H A Schmidt-Wilcke
The aim of this clinical investigation was to register the frequency of endoscopically defined diseases of the upper intestinal tract in a given region (Münster and Münsterland) within the period of one year (1.8.1999-31.7.2000). Furthermore, we tried to get an impression on the quality of the upper intestinoscopies by standardised conditions which had been developed by a steering committee (endoscopists and pathologists). 20 physicians (internal specialists and gastroenterologists) examined non-preselected patients and registered all relevant findings in the upper intestinal tract...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: In humans, trefoil peptides (TFF peptides) and some mucins have been reported to be expressed in a cell-specific manner at mucosal surfaces of normal gastrointestinal tissues. Neoplastic conditions cause characteristic changes of these expression patterns. To study such patterns in Barrett's metaplasia and squamous cell carcinoma of the oesophagus (SCC), the distribution of MUC1, MUC2, MUC5AC and the three TFF peptides (TFF1, TFF2 and TFF3) was investigated. METHODS: In 40 archival samples of SCC and in 21 samples of Barret's metaplasia, expression of the three mucins and two TFF peptides (TFF1 and TFF2) was assessed by specific antibodies...
