45 In addition, the availability of early detection screening in Japan and Korea substantially increased the proportion of early-stage cancers detected, and in areas with an active mass screening program, gastric cancer mortality rates have been reduced by half from those in the early 1970s. When gastric cancer is limited to the mucosa, the 5-year survival rate approaches 95%; however, few early-stage gastric cancers are discovered in the United States, which explains the 5-year survival rate of <20%.

Type) (F).

Pylori is modulated by host genetics, influencing the risk of gastric cancer development. Among the best understood genetic changes are proinflammatory gene polymorphisms in the IL-1β and IL-1RN (receptor antagonist) genes, which have been shown to increase the risk of hypochlorhydria, gastric atrophy, gastric cancer, and cancer precursors in the presence of H. 30 28 Section I • Introduction Molecular Pathways of H. pylori–associated Gastric Carcinogenesis Both H. pylori bacteria and bacterial factors released in the gastric mucosa environment, as well as inflammatory mediators and oxygen radicals released by activated or injured epithelial and inflammatory cells alter the normal regulation of molecular signaling, epigenetic events, and gene transcription.
