Abstract:
Gastric cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death worldwide. The strongest risk factor in the development of distal gastric cancer is Helicobacter Pylori (H. pylori) infection. Though the exact mechanism through which H. pylori contributes to gastric cancer progression is not yet fully elucidated, it may involve the downstream pathways triggered by hypergastrinaemia, which include induction of matrix metalloproteinases (mmps), and enhanced expression of growth factors.
