Paper Abstract

Abnormalities in cellular DNA content and proliferative rate are observed not only in cancer, but may be seen in premalignant disease as part of the multistep process of progression towards malignancy during carcinogenesis. Flow cytometry can be used to document these premalignant changes. Several gastrointestinal diseases provide good models for studying these abnormalities as early detectors which may select those patients at greatest risk for progression to cancer.
