What new research is being done for stomach cancer?

Doctors are performing a range of Phase II studies of new therapies for gastric and other cancers. This new research is contributing to the understanding of how changes in stomach cells are driven by infection and inflammation, leading to changes that result in gastric cancer. Researchers are investigating a range of other factors in the development of gastric cancer, including the role of the hormone gastrin, histamine production, and certain innate immune factors in the development of stomach cancer.
