Increased oral pathogens, decreased bacterial diversity predict precancerous stomach cancer lesions
from New York University via ScienceDaily
Elevated pathogen colonization and a lack of bacterial diversity in the mouth were identified in people with precancerous lesions that could precede stomach cancer, finds a new study led by New York University College of Dentistry and New York University School of Medicine. The findings, published in the November issue of the Journal of Periodontology, provide new evidence that the increase in pathogens associated with periodontal disease could contribute to the development of precancerous lesions of stomach cancer.
