Identification of Spasmolytic polypeptide expressing metaplasia (SPEM) as a preneoplastic lesion in the stomach.

  • Dr. Goldenring first identified and named SPEM as a preneoplastic metaplastic lesion in the human stomach in 1999. He identified the induction of SPEM in mouse models involving chronic H. felis infection or acute drug-induced loss of loss of gastric parietal cells. Subsequently, he has demonstrated that SPEM arises from transdifferentiation of mature chief cells. These findings led to a paradigm shift in the concepts for the origin of preneoplastic lesion in the stomach, demonstrating that metaplasia does not arise from professional progenitor cells in the gastric mucosa, but rather is derived from a mature zymogen-secreting lineage. Dr. Goldenring has further demonstrated that M2-macrophages drive the development of proliferative, more intestinalized metaplasia. More recently, he has shown that ILC2s secreting IL-13 are critical intrinsic immune cells regulating the induction of SPEM. He has also provided evidence that SPEM gives rise to intestinal metaplasia in both humans and mice.
