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. [ more + ]
