He currently serves as the Director of Esophageal Research and Director of Esophageal Diagnostics and Therapeutic Endoscopy within the Division of Thoracic and Foregut Surgery. r. Jobe's areas of interest are in esophageal cancer, Barrett's esophagus, esophageal preservation in the face of early malignancy, minimally invasive surgery, endoscopic therapy, esophageal motility disorders and complicated gastroesophageal reflux disease. Dr. Jobe received his medical degree>from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska and a Bachelor of Science degree from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California.

"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.

A research team led by Allegheny Health Network surgical oncologist Blair Jobe, MD, has developed and validated a four-protein serum biomarker panel that holds significant promise for early detection of esophageal cancer, a relatively rare but often deadly disease that has grown in incidence over the past several decades.
Dr. Jobe's findings were published online in Cancer, a journal of the American Cancer Society.
The four-protein panel, called B-AMP (biglycan, myeloperoxidase, annexin-A6 and protein S100-A9), is a simple, non-invasive, low-cost blood test, that identified esophageal cancer with a high classification accuracy of 87 percent in the study.
The discovery represents a major step forward in not only early detection but also the management of esophageal cancer, said Dr. Jobe, Director of Allegheny Health Network's Esophageal and Thoracic Institute. The test is already being used at the Institute in a clinical trial setting to monitor the course of esophageal cancer.
"Esophageal cancer patients often have few options available to fight this disease, and five-year survival rates are extremely low at about 15 percent," said Dr. Jobe.
Followed by novel mathematical modeling, Dr. Jobe's team was able to combine relevant and strong individual biomarkers into a panel that is accurate and reliable in detecting esophageal cancer.
"Dr. Jobe's research shows the value of our approach to working collaboratively and across the full spectrum of disease," said David Parda, MD, System Chair, Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute.
