There is a relation between excess body mass index and overall cancer incidence and mortality, but the relation to noncardia gastric cancer is inconsistent. A high physical activity level decreases the risk of several cancers, but few studies have focused on gastric cancer. We conducted a population-based, prospective cohort study in Nord-Trondelag county(More)
The relations between tobacco, alcohol and risk of gastric cancer need to be established, and any gain from preventive measures should be estimated. We conducted a population-based, prospective cohort study in Nord-Trondelag county in Norway. During 1984-1986, adult residents were invited to a health survey and they answered questionnaires that assessed(More)
A novel histologic phenotype of chronic esophagitis, ie, lymphocytic esophagitis, is reported in 20 patients. Lymphocytic esophagitis is characterized by high numbers of intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs) gathered mainly around peripapillary fields and by none (n = 12) to occasional (n = 8) CD15+ intraepithelial granulocytes. IELs expressed CD3, CD4 (42%),(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric adenocarcinoma is the second leading cause of cancer death worldwide. It has been suggested that consumption of salted foods is associated with increased risk of this cancer, but the results of the few available prospective studies are contradictory. METHODS A population-based, prospective cohort study in Nord-Trondelag County in Norway(More)
There is an unexplained male predominance among patients with gastric cancer, and many carcinogens are found in male-dominated dusty occupations. However, the relation between occupational exposures and risk of gastric cancer remains unclear. To investigate whether airborne occupational exposures might influence the risk of noncardia gastric cancer, we used(More)
The incidence of gastric cancer has witnessed major changes over the past decades. Until recently, gastric cancer was a common malignancy in most countries. A striking decline in incidence in most Western populations has occurred since the 1970s, and elucidating the detailed causes for this trend can potentially be of great value for targeted preventive(More)
