Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Response to therapy [ Time Frame: one year post ablation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    evaulation will be made at 3 month intervals for one year post ablation


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

biopsy samples, serum, plasma, buffycoat, cytology brushings


Estimated Enrollment: 160
Study Start Date: January 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Radiofrequency ablation
participants with barrett's esophagus with high grade dysplasia who undergo radiofrequency ablation (RFA)
Genetic: response to therapy
evaluate specific markers for response to therapy at specific intervals pre and post therapy

Detailed Description:

This Project is designed to identify biologically-based and clinically-useful biomarkers of tissue at risk for neoplastic progression as well as of response to ablation therapy. These results will result in improved risk stratification in BE and better targeting of resources for patients who are candidates for ablative therapy, while simultaneously providing key information regarding the origins of Barrett's esophagus.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

Participants must have biopsy proven Barret's esophgus with evidence of specialized intestinal epithelium with high grade dysplasia or early intramucosal carcinoma (mEAC) on histology (confirmed by two pathologists). Patients must have a BE length ≥ 2 cm and ≤ 8 cm.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Barrett's esophagus with high grade dysplasia or intramucosal (early) adenocarcinoma.
  • BE length ≥ 2 cm and ≤ 8 cm.
  • Able to return every 3 months for one year after ablation

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who are unable to be compliant with follow-up endoscopies
  • patients who cannot tolerate Proton Pump inhibitors
  • pre-existing esophageal strictures
  • pregnant or nursing women
