Clinicians and basic researchers worldwide convened at the annual Digestive Disease Week where the latest research in the field of gastroenterology and hepatology is presented. In this report, the highlights of the convention on the field of Barrett's esophagus (BE) and associated esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) are summarized. New clinical and preclinical developments in etiology, diagnosis, surveillance, and prevention and therapy of BE and EAC in respect to current knowledge are reflected. We also discuss the relevance and impact of these findings on the future of BE and EAC research.
