Part of the Chemotherapy book series (CT, volume 8)


Examination of gastroscopic biopsies reveals a large percentage of chronic atrophic gastritis. In these cases there may often be increased proliferation of mucous glands and also the appearance of atypical epithelia. We are classifying these patients in a separate category as “patients with an increased risk”. They are controlled over short periods by gastroscopy and selective gastrobiopsy. In this way early diagnosis and treatment of gastric carcinoma is possible, and facilities for prophylactic chemotherapy are thereby given.
