The "ABC method" is a serum gastric cancer screening method, and the subjects were divided based on H. pylori serology and atrophic gastritis as detected by serum pepsinogen (PG): Group A [H. pylori (-) PG (-)], Group B [H. pylori (+) PG (-)], Group C [H. pylori (+) PG (+)], and Group D [H. pylori (-) PG (+)]. The risk of gastric cancer is highest in Group D, followed by Groups C, B, and A. Groups B, C, and D are advised to undergo endoscopy, and the recommended surveillance is every three years, every two years, and annually, respectively. In this report, the reported results with respect to further risk stratification by anti-H. pylori antibody titer in each subgroup are reviewed: (1) high-negative antibody titer subjects in Group A, representing posteradicated individuals with high risk for intestinal-type cancer; (2) high-positive antibody titer subjects in Group B, representing active inflammation with high risk for diffuse-type cancer; and (3) low-positive antibody titer subjects in Group C, representing advanced atrophy with increased risk for intestinal-type cancer. In these subjects, careful follow-up with intervals of surveillance of every three years in (1), every two years in (2), and annually in (3) should be considered.

To present the strategies and preliminary findings of the first 3 years after implementing a Helicobacter pylori screening and eradication program to prevent gastric cancer in Saga Prefecture.
The incidence of gastric cancer occurring after successful Helicobacter pylori eradication has been increasing. We aimed to clarify the influence of eradication therapy on the ability to diagnose earl...
In Japan, incidence of gastric cancer is expected to follow the current downward trend as the younger generation has lower incidence of Helicobacter pylori infection. In this study we aimed to estimat...
Gastric acid secretion is compromised in chronic Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection allowing overgrowth of non-H. pylori gastric bacteria (NHGB) in the stomach.
The incidence of metachronous gastric cancer (MGC) in patients whose primary gastric neoplasm is discovered after Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) eradication remains unclear. Here, we evaluated the lon...
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection, affecting an estimated 50% of the global population, is a main cause of chronic gastritis, peptic ulcers and gastric cancer. By causing progressi...
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is associated with gastric cancer in epidemiological studies.Gastric atrophy and intestinal metaplasia caused by H. pylori are considered as precancerous le...
Helicobacter pylori plays an important role in the development of gastric cancer, while other gastric microbiota may also involved. Is there some difference of the gastric microbiota befor...
Helicobacter pylori is closely related with gastritis, peptic ulcer, gastric cancer and gastric MALT lymphoma, and it may participate in a variety of parenteral diseases. Infection rates o...
Helicobacter pylori (HP) is the major risk factors of gastritis, gastric ulcers, duodenal ulcers, mucosa associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma and gastric cancer. Helicobacter pylori are fou...
A spiral bacterium active as a human gastric pathogen. It is a gram-negative, urease-positive, curved or slightly spiral organism initially isolated in 1982 from patients with lesions of gastritis or peptic ulcers in Western Australia. Helicobacter pylori was originally classified in the genus CAMPYLOBACTER, but RNA sequencing, cellular fatty acid profiles, growth patterns, and other taxonomic characteristics indicate that the micro-organism should be included in the genus HELICOBACTER. It has been officially transferred to Helicobacter gen. nov. (see Int J Syst Bacteriol 1989 Oct;39(4):297-405).
Infections with organisms of the genus HELICOBACTER, particularly, in humans, HELICOBACTER PYLORI. The clinical manifestations are focused in the stomach, usually the gastric mucosa and antrum, and the upper duodenum. This infection plays a major role in the pathogenesis of type B gastritis and peptic ulcer disease.
A species of gram-negative, spiral-shaped bacteria found in the gastric mucosa that is associated with chronic antral gastritis. This bacterium was first discovered in samples removed at endoscopy from patients investigated for HELICOBACTER PYLORI colonization.
Ulceration of the GASTRIC MUCOSA due to contact with GASTRIC JUICE. It is often associated with HELICOBACTER PYLORI infection or consumption of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
Ulcer that occurs in the regions of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT which come into contact with GASTRIC JUICE containing PEPSIN and GASTRIC ACID. It occurs when there are defects in the MUCOSA barrier. The common forms of peptic ulcers are associated with HELICOBACTER PYLORI and the consumption of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
Peptic Ulcer Disease
Peptic Ulcer Disease - stomach ulcer, duodenal ulcers used to refer to all types of peptic ulcers. A peptic ulcer is an erosion in a segment of the Gastrointestinal (GI) muscularis mucosae, typically in the stomach (gastric ulcer) or the first few cent...
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
