Clinical and experimental evidence indicates that carcinoid tumours of the stomach fundic mucosa represent another example of hormone-dependent neoplasm, gastrin being the hormone involved in tumour induction. In this context hyperplasia of fundic endocrine cells associated with chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG) and hypergastrinaemia is regarded as the most frequent preneoplastic lesion. However, the cell type involved in this hyperplasia has not been clarified. To elucidate this problem fundic… 
Autoimmune gastritis. A clinicopathologic study of 25 cases.
TLDR
It is shown that the diagnosis of AG may be established microscopically in endoscopic specimens of the gastric body mucosa when histologic features and immunohistochemical detection of ECL and G cell hyperplasia are combined.

Quantitative electron microscopy of endocrine cells in oxyntic mucosa of normal human stomach
TLDR
The quantitative ultrastructural analysis of the endocrine cell population of the normal human oxyntic mucosa of the stomach in gastric biopsies collected from five male and five female healthy volunteers aged 19–31 may allow a better evaluation of physiological and pharmacological variations of the ENDO cell population.

Neuroendocrine Pathology of the Stomach: The Parma Contribution
TLDR
Different types of neuroendocrine tumors have been identified in the stomach with substantial variations in prognosis and treatment options, and ECL cell tumors developed in hypergastrinemic conditions were found to behave better than those originating outside the setting of hormonal stimulation.
Ultrastructural immunohistochemical localization of gastrin, somatostatin and serotonin in endocrine cells of human antral gastric mucosa.
TLDR
It is concluded that gastrin and somatostatin immunostaining in granules of G cells and D cells reflects the granular content in G cellsand D cells, respectively, whereas serotonin Immunostaining does not agree with the granularity content of EC cells.
5 Chronic Gastritis
TLDR
It is suggested that regenerative abilities of gastric mucosa glandular epithelium cells are the main mechanism determining their right functions concerning both integrity of the mucosa and normal function of its all epithelial cellular elements.
Evaluation of the morphological criteria used so far for diagnosis of superficial and atrophic chronic gastritis
TLDR
It is suggested that regenerative abilities of gastric mucosa glandular epithelium cells are the main mechanism determining their right functions concerning both integrity of the mucosa and normal function of its all epithelial cellular elements.

Argyrophil cell hyperplasia of fundic mucosa in patients with chronic atrophic gastritis.
TLDR
Argyrophil cell hyperplasia of atrophic fundic mucosa is prevalently found in women with hypergastrinaemia, and the hyperplastic process involves mostly the ECL type of gastric endocrine cells.
Pathologic changes of endocrine cells in chronic atrophic gastritis. An ultrastructural study on peroral gastric biopsy specimens.
TLDR
The endocrine cells seen in metaplastic intestinal epithelium exhibited ultrastruct characteristics of at least three different types of intestinalendocrine cells (EC, L, and S cells).
Mixed endocrine gastric tumors associated with hypergastrinemia of antral origin.
TLDR
Whether greatly raised serum gastrin levels in patients with atrophic gastritis may be associated with increased risks for the development of certain types of gastric tumors is discussed.

The syndrome of gastric argyrophil carcinoid tumors and nonantral gastric atrophy.
TLDR
The results suggest that nonantral gastric atrophy predisposes to Gastric carcinoid as well as to gastric carcinoma.
Gastric carcinoids and related endocrine growths.
TLDR
A series of 30 gastric endocrine tumours has been revised in the light of available available cytologic and clinicopathologic information, and hypergastrinaemia is among causative agents of argyrophil ECL cell hyperplasias and, possibly, of tumours of the oxynticopeptic mucosa.
Pathology of endocrine cells in gastric mucosa.
TLDR
Typical and atypical forms of fundic carcinoids have been described, usually without specific clinical syndrome, and their involvement in peptic ulcer disease is probably limited to a minority of cases.
Gastric carcinoids of argyrophil ECL cells.
TLDR
Tumor cells were found to be unreactive to all the 18 available antiserums to gut hormones, including gastrin, somatostatin, glucagon, and pancreatic polypeptides.

TLDR
Findings question the position that gastrin synthesis in the stomach is only associated with G cells, as most of the proliferated endocrine cells in nonintestinalized epithelium in the body of stomachs in patients with pernicious anemia have the fine structure of ECL (enterochromaffin-like) cells.
