 The Japanese gastric cancer association has proposed the indication criteria for endoscopic mucosal resection(EMR)of early gastric cancer. It is as follows ; intramucosal cancer without ulcerative findings, histologically differentiated type, and less than 20 mm in diameter. This proposal is suitable as a minimal standard for general gastroenterologists. In the near future, These criteria will be expanded widely based on the results of analysis of lymph node metastasis and prognostic data after clinical trials. This will be supported by the development of new EMR techniques.
