Genetic Analysis Better Predicts Stomach Cancer

A new study published in the journals Cancer Cell has revealed that genomic technologies provide better insights into intestinal metaplasia (IM), a known risk factor for gastric (stomach) cancer. Patients with IM are six times more likely to develop stomach cancer than those without. The research could also help detect patients who are infected with the Helicobacter pylori bacteria, which is also linked to the disease.
