Title: COMPOSITIONS FOR CHARACTERIZING DEVELOPMENT OF ESOPHAGEAL ADENOCARCINOMA IN PATIENTS AND METHODS OF USE THEREOF
Abstract:
The present invention is a method, comprising: obtaining a sample of an esophageal tissue from a subject, wherein the sample of the esophageal tissue comprises or is suspected of comprising a break of chromosome 2 (chr2), a break of chromosome 10 (chr10), a break of chromosome 16 (chr16), or any combination thereof, and detecting in the sample of esophageal tissue whether the break of chr2 is present, whether the break of chr10 is present, whether the break of chr16 is present, or any combination thereof, by contacting the sample of esophageal tissue with a first detectably labeled probe, a second detectably labeled probe, a third detectably labeled probe, or any combination thereof, and detecting binding between: the first detectably labeled probe and the break of chr2, the second detectably labeled probe and the break of chr10, the third detectably labeled probe and the break of chr16, or any combination thereof.
