  • Experience. Mayo Clinic doctors care for more than 4,100 people with Barrett's esophagus each year.
  • Research. The Mayo Clinic Esophageal Adenocarcinoma and Barrett's Esophagus Registry compiles information from people receiving care at Mayo. Researchers hope this information can help them gain a greater understanding of the genetic basis of Barrett's esophagus and develop a genetic blood test that can easily screen for the disease. Mayo specialists are studying the use of genetic information to determine which treatments are likely to offer the best results for people with Barrett's esophagus.
