To clarify the effects of life-style on gastric cancer by subsite focusing on the proximal part (cardia and fundus) and the distal part (pyloric antrum), a case-control study was conducted at the Aichi Cancer Center in Nagoya, Japan from 1988-1991.
This study compared 668 histologically confirmed gastric cancer cases [123 cardia, 218 middle (body), 256 antrum, and 71 unclassified] with 668 controls using a common questionnaire about life-styles as related to smoking, drinking, dietary habits and frequency of food intake.
Controls were selected from among outpatients of the same hospital.
Controls free of cancer and other specific diseases were matched with cases for sex, age (within 2 years), and time of hospital visit (within 2 months).
