Barrett’s oesophagus is a pre-cancerous condition of the oesophagus (gullet) resulting from prolonged regurgitation (reflux) of acid and bile from the stomach into the gullet,which can lead to chronic changes in the its lining and in a proportion of sufferers can undergo malignant change which generally has a poor prognosis with only about 13% surviving 5 years post diagnosis.

As much more data are required to formulate the best way of tackling this increasing problem we started the United Kingdom National Barrett’s Oesophagus Registry (UKBOR) already in 1996, the first and now one of the largest such registries in the world with over 14,500 Barrett’s oesophagus patients databased from 47 UK centres.
