 Recent studies form Japan as well as overseas have demonstrated that eradication therapy reduced the rate of discovering early-stage gastric cancer. However, the effect was limited to the prevention of gastric cancer in the early stage, and a precise endoscopic diagnosis is essential. The eradication therapy influences the endoscopic and histologic morphology of cancer tissue, which may influence the cancer detection rate by endoscopy. It should be emphasized that some cancer lesions were detected in the advanced stage in spite of the cancer survey after eradication therapy. To achieve cancer prevention, the eradication should be carried out as early as possible, before single cancer cells develop in the gastric mucosa.
