Abstract

Background: Intestinal metaplasia (IM) is an important precursor lesion in the development of gastric cancer ( GC). The aim of this study was to investigate genetic factors previously linked to GC risk for their possible association with IM. A total of 18 polymorphisms in 14 candidate genes were evaluated in a Singapore-Chinese population at high risk of developing GC.
