Abstract: American-Japanese in Hawaii with gastric cancer have characteristics intermediate to those in Japan and the mainland United States. Japanese and mainland U.S. studies have found Helicobacter pylori is associated with intestinal type gastric adenocarcinoma. The present Hawaii study confirmed this association which is independent of Japanese race (27.6% intestinal type and 4.5% diffuse type were H. pylori positive, p = 0.031, n = 80).
