In its January 2015 issue,
Gastroenterology & Endoscopy News featured research by Inform Diagnostics
GI pathologists on the merits of taking a biopsy on stomachs that appear “normal”
on endoscopy. As lead researcher of a research poster presented at the
2014 annual meeting of the American College of Gastroenterology, Inform Diagnostics’s
Daniel T. Nevin, MD, was interviewed by reporter Marie Rosenthal about
the findings of the Inform Diagnostics team.
Nearly 30% of stomachs that appear to be normal during endoscopy in fact
may have significant gastric pathology. As Dr. Nevin noted, “You
cannot confirm normal gastric mucosa by the endoscopic appearance alone.
You really need to do a biopsy to tell if it is truly normal.”
