  1. Gastric cancer, gastritis and plasma vitamin C : Results from an international correlation and cross-sectional study.

    Article - En anglais

    Low intake of foods rich in vitamin C is associated with an increased risk of gastric cancer, and geographic variation in average vitamin C intake, therefore, could explain some of the wide international variation in gastric cancer rates.

    This multicentre study investigated the relationships between plasma levels of vitamin C, as an indicator of vitamin C intake, and gastric cancer rates, markers of gastritis and other socio-demographic variables.

    Fasting plasma samples from about 1,400 individuals from 9 centres in 7 countries worldwide were assayed for total vitamin C using a fluorometric assay.

    There was no association between average plasma vitamin C levels and either gastric cancer mortality or incidence rates in the populations studied.

    Therefore, variation in fasting plasma vitamin C levels, as an indicator of consumption of vitamin C, does not appear to explain any of the wide geographic variation in gastric cancer rates.

    Furthermore, there was no association between plasma vitamin C levels and Helicobacter pylori infection, low serum levels of pepsinogen A (as a marker of severe chronic atrophic gastritis) or the presence of DNA adducts in blood leukocyte DNA.

    Multivariate models showed that fasting plasma vitamin C levels were associated positively with female sex, higher levels of education, never having smoked and increasing height and negatively with number of cigarettes smoked per day and increasing weight. (...)
