Gastric carcinogenesis may be under the combined influence of factors related to the host, Helicobacter pylori bacterial virulence and the environment. One possible host-related factor is the inflammatory or immune response. To clarify this point, we investigated the association between plasma levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) and serum amyloid A (SAA) and the subsequent risk of gastric cancer in a population-based nested case-control study. Subjects were observed from 1990 to 2004. Among 36… CONTINUE READING
