Plasma fatty acid fraction and lipoprotein fraction of patients with stomach cancer were determined respectively by means of gaschromatography and paperelectrophoresis as compared with non cancer patient in order to investigatethe changes of fatty acid coposition in the host bearing tumor. The results obtained were as follows: Decreasing of the linoleic acid and increasing of the oleic acid were mostly observed as characteristic changes of fatty acid in the patient of stomach cancer group. These tendencies were not observed in the case of gastroduodenal ulcer patients. Low levels α-lipoprotein based on hypoproteinamia accompanied with decreasing of albumin were mostly observed in stomach cancer patients. No relations were found between variations of plasma fatty acid fraction and those of the removed specimens which were classified according to Borrmanns and histological classification.
