A systematic review and meta-analysis of the risk of increasing adiposity on Barrett's esophagus.

A systematic review and meta-analysis of the risk of increasing adiposity on Barrett's esophagus. Esophageal adenocarcinoma and its precursor lesion, Barrett's esophagus, are increasing in incidence in western populations. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and high body mass index (BMI) are known risk factors, but it is unclear whether BMI mediates its risk on Barrett's esophagus independently. This systematic review and meta-analysis investigated whether increasing BMI is associated with Barrett's esophagus as compared to general population and GERD controls. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Gastroenterology Pubmed

Abstract

Esophageal adenocarcinoma and its precursor lesion, Barrett's esophagus, are increasing in incidence in western populations. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and high body mass index (BMI) are known risk factors, but it is unclear whether BMI mediates its risk on Barrett's esophagus independently. This systematic review and meta-analysis investigated whether increasing BMI is associated with Barrett's esophagus as compared to general population and GERD controls.
