Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Gastric cancer remains a prevalent disease worldwide, with high mortality rates. Recent advances in early detection and mprovements in cancer management have led to decreased incidences and increased survival of patients with gastric cancer.

This Special Issue will discuss the recent discovery of the cellular and molecular bases underlying gastric cancer development and progression, recent advances in endoscopic diagnosis and the early detection of precancerous lesions and early gastric cancer, endoscopic therapy of these lesions, surgical management including techniques and considerations in minimally invasive surgery, innovations in neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and radiation treatment in gastric cancer.
