BACKGROUND Although serum pepsinogen tests are useful for predicting the presence of atrophic gastritis, the optimal cut-off values have not been fully evaluated. AIM To determine the optimal serum pepsinogen cut-off value for predicting atrophic gastritis. METHODS Patients scheduled for upper endoscopy at Severance Hospital, Korea, between August 2012 and October 2013, were recruited prospectively. Endoscopic biopsies for atrophic gastritis were obtained and histologically graded, based on… CONTINUE READING
