Simulation model provides more accurate estimate of cancer progression in Barrett's esophagus

September 3, 2015

Simulation modeling revealed that the lower estimates of the rate of progression from Barrett’s esophagus to esophageal adenocarcinoma from population-based studies are likely more accurate than higher estimates from prospective studies due to detection bias from endoscopic surveillance.

Because the true risk of progression from BE to cancer is uncertain, researchers used the ERASMUS/UW esophageal adenocarcinoma model — which was previously developed by Erasmus Medical Center University in the Netherlands and the University of Washington — to more accurately estimate cancer incidence in BE by reconciling published data.
