Patients and family members often want to search for more information on their own. Maintaining a comprehensive and complete bibliography of gastric cancer research is beyond the scope of NSFC. With the assistance of our Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) we will occasionally provide links to publications, particularly in the area of Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer, where early identification of one’s risk and potential treatment strategies may be vitally important to a family attempting to manage the health of many individuals who test positive for the genetic cause of this deadly syndrome. Our source for these occasional reports will be our SAC.
