Volume: Barrett's Esophagus
Chapter: Etiology and origins of Barrett's epithelium

The main etiological factors

The lower esophageal sphincter versus the hiatal hernia in the arena of gastroesophageal reflux disease. A revisited subject
S.J. Sontag  

What is the role of an inadequate control of the lower esophageal sphincter (structure, position, innervation, hormonal control)?
O. Korn, A. Csendes, I. Braghetto  

Composition of the refluxate
D. Nehra  

Impairment of mucosal resistance
S. Bor  

How abnormal is gastric function in patients with Barrett's esophagus?
C. Scarpignato, I. Pelosini, S.Contini  

Are there grounds to support a congenital origin for Barrett's esophagus?
J.M. Streitz  

Can a familial prevalence of Barrett's esophagus be demonstrated?
A.J. Cameron  

Are there ethnic differences in the prevalence of Barrett's esophagus?
J.P. Waring  

What epidemiological considerations on Barrett's esophagus development can be drawn from salivary epidermal growth factor output?
M. Marcinkiewicz, C. Poplawski, T. Zbroch, J. Sarosiek  

Is cardiac mucosa normal or is it metaplastic?
H.D. Appelman  

What information can be drawn from experimental models of Barrett's esophagus?
R.M. Bremner, C.G. Bremner  

Is there immunocytochemical evidence to support origin of Barrett's epithelium from adjacent squamous epithelium?
J.A. Salo, E.I.T. Sihvo  

What is the relationship between carditis and Barrett's esophagus?
R.M. Genta  

What is the evidence that Barrett's mucosa originates from upward extension of gastric cardiac epithelium?
C.G. Bremner, R.M. Bremner  

What is the prevalence of long segment Barrett's esophagus?
A.J. Cameron
