Core Tip Esophageal adenocarcinoma remains a major burden upon health. Experimental studies have suggested that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and statins may have useful actions against esophageal cancer cells. This review of observational studies shows that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs reduced adenocarcinoma incidence in patients with Barrett’s esophagus by 41%, while statins reduced the risk by 43%. The cancer preventive effect is enhanced in those patients taking a combination of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and statins (a 74% decrease). Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs clearly have substantial potential for toxicity, while statins are rather safe drugs. Their combination offers promise for chemoprevention and further interventional studies are warranted.
