This is a multi-center prospective case control study aiming to compare different methods of risk stratification models in predicting the risk of gastric cancer development.


The case control study would compare which type of assessment (Endoscopic / histological) is more accurate in predicting the risk of gastric cancer development.

The risk factor assessment would be based on the following criteria.

Endoscopic assessment:

1. Atrophic gastritis, based on Kimura Takemoto Classification

2. Kyoto classification of gastritis

3. Intestinal metaplasia, based on Endoscopic Mapping and Grading of Intestinal Metaplasia (EGGIM) Histological assessment (Based on random biopsies)

1. Operative Links on Gastritis Assessment 2. Operative Links on Gastric Intestinal Metaplasia

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

That portion of the stomach remaining after gastric surgery, usually gastrectomy or gastroenterostomy for cancer of the stomach or peptic ulcer. It is a common site of cancer referred to as stump cancer or carcinoma of the gastric stump.

Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.

A proto-oncogene protein and member of the Wnt family of proteins. It is frequently up-regulated in human GASTRIC CANCER and is a tumor marker (TUMOR MARKERS, BIOLOGICAL) of gastric and COLORECTAL CANCER.

Vagal denervation of that part of the STOMACH lined with acid-secreting mucosa (GASTRIC MUCOSA) containing the GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS. Since the procedure leaves the vagal branches to the antrum and PYLORUS intact, it circumvents gastric drainage required with truncal vagotomy techniques.

Rounded or pyramidal cells of the GASTRIC GLANDS. They secrete HYDROCHLORIC ACID and produce gastric intrinsic factor, a glycoprotein that binds VITAMIN B12.
