Mechanism of Synergistic Carcinogenesis from Hypergastrinemia and Helicobacter Infection

Anton Yuryev


We have built a model for gastric cancer predisposition caused by hypergastrenimia during Helicobacter infection. The model was built using publically available data form hypergastrenimic transgenic mice infected with Helicobacter. We used the model to identify potential drug targets for gastric cancer, annexin II and TRAF6, and to find prognostic biomarkers for gastric cancer predisposition due to hypergastrenimia.
