Gastric adenocarcinoma remains a common cause of death worldwide.
There is convincing evidence that this cancer is causally linked to Helicobacter pylori.
Professor Nick Talley along with other leading authorities in the field formed the Asian-Pacific Gastric Cancer Consensus.
|The Consensus recommended population-based screening and treatment for H. pylori|
|American Journal of Gastroenterology|
The research team systematically reviewed all of the available evidence for the role of H. pylori, diet and other risk factors in this malignancy.
The consensus conference recommended population-based screening and treatment for H. pylori in particularly high-risk population settings.
Professor Talley concludes, "The evidence for these recommendations is summarized in this report."
"The global implications and in the USA are considered."
