AbstractBACKGROUND: In areas with high prevalence of Helicobacter pylori (Hp) infection and high gastric cancer mortality such as China and Japan, Hp status is not a good marker for increased risk of gastric cancer. The increased risk associated with CagA+ Hp strains are controversial in these areas as well. Hong Kong has a moderate to high prevalence of Hp infection and a gastric cancer mortality of 7.9/105 population. We examine the relationship between Hp, particularly CagA+ strains, and gastric cancer in Hong Kong adults. METHODS: Sera from 52 patients (29 male and 23 females, mean age 59.8 yrs) with non-cardiac type of gastric cancer and 52 age and sex matched asymptomatic controls were examined for anti-Hp antibody by using the commercial ELISA kit (Bio-rad, USA). CagA status was determined by an anti-CagA antibody assay using a purified recombinant CagA fusion protein as antigen using the method described(Am J Gastroenterol 1996:91:949). Results: Hp infection was found in 42 (80.8%) and 35 (67.3%) of gastric cancer patients and controls respectively. Hp infection is associated with a moderate increased risk of gastric cancer (odds ratio 2.04, 95% C.I. 0.83 - 5.02, p=0.089). Among the Hp carriers, 36 (85.7%) and 14 (40%) were cagA+ in the gastric cancer patients and controls respectively. CagA status is associated with a significant increased risk of gastric cancer (O.R. 9.0, 95% C.I. 3.0 - 26.9 …
