The development of the hybridoma technique [8] has provided a powerful new tool for studies of tumor-associated antigens. Since 1978 Koprowski [9] and other investigators have prepared monoclonal antibodies (McAbs) to human melanoma, leukemia, lymphoma, colon cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, and others. And some new tumor-associated antigens have been identified [4, 11]. However, there are only a few studies on antigens of gastric cancer. The mortality rate of gastric cancer is the highest one in China. Therefore, it is very interesting and necessary to investigate the antigens of gastric cancer in order to develop new approaches to the diagnosis and therapy of gastric cancer.
