METHODS This cross-sectional study was carried out in Mexican children (under five years(More)
INTRODUCTION Gastric cancer (GC) is the third leading cause of cancer death worldwide, and is divided histologically in diffuse gastric cancer (DGC) and intestinal gastric cancer (IGC). Multiple risk factors have been associated with GC in different populations. The objective was to analyze the risk factors associated to DGC and IGC in a population from the(More)

Gastric cancer (GC), the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in Mexico and worldwide, can be classified into diffuse (DGC) or intestinal (IGC) types based on its histological characteristics. DGC is characterized by reduced expression of the cell adhesion protein E-cadherin, which is encoded by CDH1. The -472delA (rs5030625) and -160C>A (rs16260)(More)
