The Key Role Of Stem Cells In Lethal Gastric Cancer Revealed

In a recent study published in Nature Communications, scientists from Cornell University made new findings in common and fatal gastric cancer research. In the United States, the incidence of gastroesophageal cancer increased 2.5-fold from the 1970s to the early 2000s, however, from the 1950s, the number of all patients with gastric cancer decreased by more than 80%; despite this, gastric cancer is still the fifth most common cancer and the third leading cause of cancer death worldwide.
