Overexpression of interleukin 1 beta in the mouse esophagus resulted in chronic esophageal inflammation (esophagitis) and expansion of progenitor cells that were sustained by the notch signaling pathway. Notch is a fundamental signaling system used by neighboring cells to communicate with each other in order to assume their proper developmental role. “When we inhibited notch signaling, that blocked proliferation and survival of the pre malignant cells, so that’s a new possible clinical strategy to use in Barrett’s patients at high risk for cancer development,” noted Dr.
