 Barrett's Esophagus Study (BEST) Trial - a Multi-Center and Endoscopic Outcomes Project

This trial is a multi-center clinical and endoscopic outcomes project involving a single large database of patients with Barrett's Esophagus (BE). The initial goal of this project is to define the incidence and prevalence of cancer and high-grade dysplasia (HGD) in patients with BE. Thus, our hypothesis is that systematic collection of data on the natural history of BE and risk factors for progression of BE will provide useful information to develop a decision model for risk stratification and risk reduction strategies in BE.

Estimated Enrollment: 2500
Study Start Date: November 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study: 18 Years to 80 Years
Genders Eligible for Study: Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers: Yes
Testing Method: Probability Sample



 High Resolution Optical Imaging of the Esophagus Using the NvisionVLE™ Imaging System Registry

This is a prospective, multi-site registry with longitudinal follow up for patients undergoing EGD or endoscopy. The primary objective is to provide a collection of patient NvisionVLE™ procedural data for participating physicians, including, but not limited to, imaging data, clinical utility data, demographics, pathology, treatment, and surveillance.

Up to 1000 patients from up to 20 sites nationwide.

There are no protocol defined follow up visits. Patients will undergo an initial baseline Volumetric Laser Endomicroscopy (VLE) procedure. A patient with a negative screening examination may not require additional screening endoscopies. For patients with established disease, further surveillance endoscopies will vary based on the extent of the disease (e.g. every 3 months, every 6 months, annual), which is based on the following American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) guideline: the role of endoscopy in the surveillance of premalignant conditions of the upper GI tract. If patients have additional VLE procedures during the enrollment period, associated data will be collected.

Estimated Enrollment: 1000
Study Start Date: July 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Genders Eligible for Study: Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers: No
Sampling Method: Non-Probability Sample
