Abstract

We conclude that atrophic gastritis (or intestinal metaplasia) and gastric cancer are very much alike in time trends and in course. This parallelism favours suggestions that H. pylori-associated gastritis with atrophic and metaplastic sequelae (atrophic gastritis) contribute to the pathogenesis of gastric cancer.
