Gastric cancer: an epidemiological review

Stephen A. Matthews

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


An attempt is made to synthesize the epidemiological literature and identify salient factors from the multitude of potential antecedents of gastric cancer, factors which to a greater or lesser degree create nonrandom variations in the distribution of the disease. Implicit in this approach is the notion that observation of spatial variations in the incidence of gastric cancer may lead to hypotheses relating to the biological, personal and physical environmental factors. An extensive bibliography accompanies the text.
