Using real-time, quantitative, methylation-specific polymerase chain reaction, the authors examined promoter hypermethylation of endoglin (ENG) in 260 endoscopic esophageal biopsy specimens of differing histologies. Results demonstrated that hypermethylation of ENG is a common, tissue-specific event in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and exhibits a field defect in normal mucosa with potential biomarker implications for the early detection of this disease.
