Unfortunately, many patients who develop adenocarcinoma don't know that they have Barrett's esophagus until it has transformed into cancer and become advanced, leading to obstruction," said principal investigator Blair A. Jobe, M.D., professor and director of esophageal research and esophageal diagnostics and therapeutic endoscopy, Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Pitt School of Medicine.

"Our research indicates that even patients without severe symptoms may benefit from Barrett's esophagus screening," Dr. Jobe noted. "If GERD patients are screened early enough, there is a better chance that Barrett's esophagus can be identified before it becomes cancerous," he stated. "We are learning that the chronic and long-term use of PPIs may not be entirely without consequences and may lead to more insidious problems such as calcium malabsorption or cause one to be asymptomatic in the face of continued esophageal injury from GERD."
Dr. Jobe and his Pitt colleagues have established the Barrett's Esophagus Risk Consortium (BERC), in which primary care patients are being screened with in-office, small-caliber, unsedated endoscopy in an attempt to better understand risk factors for the condition as well as lower the threshold for screening. The multicenter effort is funded by the National Institutes of Health.

"There is no reason people need to suffer from the symptoms of GERD, with a variety of treatments available ranging from lifestyle changes to surgery," said Blair Jobe, MD, Director of the Esophageal and Lung Institute at Allegheny Health Network.

Dr. Jobe told her about the LINX Management System, a new minimally invasive treatment that studies have shown can greatly reduce the symptoms and associated risks of GERD. LINX is the first non-medical surgical therapy to be approved for GERD by the Food and Drug Administration in more than three decades.
The LINX system prevents reflux by reinforcing the faulty lower esophageal sphincter, Dr. Jobe explained.

Blair Jobe, MD, a surgical oncologist and Director of Allegheny Health Network's Esophageal and Thoracic Institute, investigated four potential biomarkers associated with esophageal cancer. This panel, called B-AMP, (biglycan, myeloperoxidase, annexin-A6 and protein S100-A9) showed clinical significance in the early diagnosis of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, Barrett's Esophagus, Dysplasia and Esophageal Cancer. Dr. Jobe's findings were recently published in Cancer, a journal of the American Cancer Society.

"This discovery represents a major step forward in not only early detection but also the management of esophageal cancer," said Dr. Jobe.
