Gastric Cancer Overview >>
Gastric adenocarcinoma is the second leading cause of cancer death worldwide. It is particularly common in Asia and
especially in China and Japan. In Singapore it is the fourth most common cancer in males who have a 1:50 lifetime risk
of developing gastric cancer. Gastric cancer traditionally carries a poor prognosis with 79% of tumors diagnosed at
stage IV and five year survival less than 5%. Advanced gastric cancer is generally refractory to chemotherapy, which
leads to poor prognosis. It has been shown that if it is diagnosed at an early stage, it is a curable disease.
Therefore it is most important to be able to identify clinically useful early markers that can detect gastric cancer
at an early stage.
