studies indicated that screening for and treating H. pylori infection
to prevent gastric cancer was potentially cost effective in the
prevention of gastric cancer, particularly at high-risk population.
The authors strongly recommended cancer prevention trials. However,
intervention studies utilizing cancer diagnosis as the primary
end point are not feasible because they require following thousands
of subjects for several decades. Thus, most available current
studies have used intermediate steps in the progression of gastric
carcinogenesis as end points which allows inferences based on
observations of a smaller number of subjects followed over a shorter
and questions? Please contact us.
