Keywords gastro-esophageal reflux disease; Barrett’s esophagus; esophageal adenocarcinoma; estrogen; male predominance
Core Tip Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD), Barrett’s esophagus and esophageal adenocarcinoma are epidemiologically recognized to be more prevalent in males due to an unknown mechanism. Our recent animal study revealed that estrogen contributes to the gender difference by inactivating inflammatory cells. Additionally, several studies demonstrated that estrogen confers epithelial resistance against causative refluxate and modifies adipose tissue metabolism in obese people and prevent the onset of GERDs. Consequently, the estrogen-related endocrine milieu in women could retard the progression of chronic inflammation to esophageal carcinogenesis, which is likely responsible for the predominance of GERD in males.
