Barrett’s Esophagus and Esophageal Cancer Research
As an internationally recognized academic medical and research center, Mount Sinai offers access to clinical trials often unavailable elsewhere. With our physician-scientists currently leading investigations into the causes and treatment of esophageal cancer, your physician may encourage you to participate in one of these trials. Although many have benefitted from breakthrough research developed at Mount Sinai, participation in a trial does not guarantee a cure. It does, however, offer you the opportunity to receive care based on the latest scientific knowledge under the direction of some of the world’s leading investigators.
We encourage you to discuss this option with your treatment team. Some of the esophageal research activities at Mount Sinai include the following:
- Endoscopic Multispectral Imaging for the Detection of Barrett’s Neoplasia
- High-Resolution Microendoscopy for the Early Detection of Esophageal Squamous Cell Neoplasia
- Confocal Endomicroscopy for the Early Detection of Barrett’s-Associated Neoplasia
- Bioengineering Research Partnership: Optical Systems for In Vivo Molecular Cancer Imaging
