metabolomics is the "systematic study of the unique chemical fingerprints that specific cellular processes leave behind"

Urinary metabolomics identified discrete metabolic signatures that clearly distinguished both Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer from controls. The metabolite expression profile of esophageal cancer was also discrete from its precursor lesion, Barrett's esophagus.

These preliminary results suggest that urinary metabolomics may have a future potential role in non-invasive screening in these conditions.
