Gastric cancer is also known as Stomach cancer. It is a type of cancer that slowly develops for several years. The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) researchers are systematically identifying the major genomic changes involved in more than 20 cancers using state-of-the-art genomic analysis technologies. TCGA researchers hope to identify specific gene changes linked to H. pylori infection, to different stages of stomach cancer and to different sub-types of stomach cancer.
According to July 2012 research and analysis of data from the HIV/AIDS Cancer Match Study revealed that carcinomas and non-Hodgkin lymphomas of the esophagus and
stomach are among the cancers whose risk is increased in people with AIDS.
