  1. Clinical application of serum pepsinogen I and II levels for mass screening to detect gastric cancer.

    Article - En anglais

    A considerable number of gastric cancers derive from stomach mucosa where chronic atrophic gastritis is severe and extensive.

    Based on the fact that the serum pepsinogen levels provide a precise measure of the extent of chronic atrophic gastritis, we have devised a mass screening method involving serum pepsinogen measurement to identify subjects at high risk of gastric cancer.

    In 1991, we screened 4,647 workers (male: 4,113, female: 534, mean age: 49.0 years) at a Japanese company using this method.

    Out of 875 subjects (18.8%) with a serum pepsinogen I level of less than 50 mug/liter and a pepsinogen I/II ratio of less than 3.0, 676 subjects (14.5%) were selected for further investigation by endoscopy.
