The gastric mucosa in gastric cancer patients in a low-incidence area

Published in European Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology. 2006, vol. 18, no. 10, p. 1085-93
Abstract Atrophic gastritis, intestinal metaplasia, and pyloric metaplasia are frequent precursors of noncardial intestinal-type gastric adenocarcinoma in populations in which both gastric cancer and Helicobacter pylori infection are common. We hypothesized that such lesions would be less prevalent in European gastric cancer patients.
