Study Description

Barrett?s oesophagus is common in the UK affecting 2 % of the population. Family history has beenrecorded among the 4000 Barrett's cases collected so far and have 241 families. Among them wehave assessed 6 multiplex families with proven Barrett?s and defined as having 1 pro band and atleast 3 affected first degree members. We propose to exome sequence the probands of these sixfamilies to assess the presence of pathogenic rare coding variants.
