DCEG researchers conduct studies on stomach (gastric) cancer, including cardia and non-cardia stomach cancer. Selected studies include:
Case-control studies of stomach cancer in the United States, Poland, and Mexico
A case-control study evaluating environmental and genetic risk factors for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma in Golestan Province, Iran
A collaboration among NCI and extramural investigators, established by DCEG in 2006, that utilizes data and biospecimens from completed and ongoing case series and observational studies of gastric cancer to replicate and extend findings from previous studies hindered by small numbers of EBV-positive cases, and to stimulate multidisciplinary research in this area.
Randomized controlled trials were launched in 1985 to test the effects of multiple vitamin and mineral interventions on total mortality and total and cause-specific cancer mortality in a rural Chinese population
Study of second primary gastrointestinal cancers among survivors of Hodgkin lymphoma and cancers of the testis, breast, and cervix
Studies initiated in 1995 to look for major susceptibility genes for upper gastrointestinal cancers and to identify the genetic changes associated with their development
