Late diagnosis is one of the biggest issues in stomach cancer. By uncovering how stomach cancer develops and spreads, our scientists’ goal is to save lives thorough better detection and treatments.
Keeping stomach cancer at bay
Prevention and molecular studies. Some people with H. pylori infection develop a rare form of cancer, known as MALT lymphoma, in which white blood cells accumulate in the stomach. Professor Ferrero’s group has identified a protein that prevents the accumulation of these cells in the stomach. Ongoing studies are focussed on identifying novel biomarkers and developing new therapies against this cancer.
