The article discusses the pathology of gastric intestinal metaplasia (IM). It enables clinicians to identify subgroups of patients with IM at increased risk for gastric cancer and propose an algorithm for the management of gastric IM. It explores various diagnostic methods such as topographic mapping and pepsinogen assessment. It cites that a histopathologic diagnosis of complete type of IM is not an indication for prolonged surveillance unless other gastric cancer risk indicators are present.

    Background: Helicobacter pylori associated gastric cancer arises via a multistage process, with atrophic gastritis being the precursor lesion. Helicobacter pylori is typically acquired in childhood, yet little is known of the prevalence of atrophic gastritis in childhood. Aim: To study atrophic...

    : ObjectiveThe measurement of serum pepsinogen has recently gained attention as a candidate for a new screening test for gastric cancer. This method is particularly attractive given its lower cost and simplicity to administer relative to photofluorography. To compare the accuracy between the two...

    Background: Our previous proteomic analysis revealed that mitogen-activated protein kinase activator with WD40 repeats (MAWD) and MAWD-binding protein (MAWBP) were downregulated in gastric cancer (GC) tissues. These proteins interacted and formed complexes in GC cells. To investigate the role of...

    Background: The ABCD screening method was developed for risk stratification of gastric cancer. It is unclear whether the ABCD method can predict the risk of gastric neoplasms, including gastric adenomas, as observed for gastric cancer. We aimed to devise a modified ABCD method for predicting...

    A cohort of individuals (n = 136) with lesions as severe as atrophic chronic gastritis (ACG) was cross-sectionally evaluated for the validity assessment of pepsinogen I (PGI) and pepsinogen II (PGII) serum levels for the diagnosis of intestinal metaplasia (IM) and gastric dysplasia.
