This study enrolled 332 AG patients who underwent initial gastroscopy from 2002 to 2005. Following parameters were collected: age, gender, smoking history, H. pylori infection, location of atrophy and intestinal metaplasia (IM), surveillance interval, follow-up duration, and neoplasia occurrence. RESULTS: Gastric neoplasia was diagnosed in 16 patients. The annual incidence rates per person-year of total gastric neoplasia, gastric high-grade intraepithelial neoplasia (HGIN), early GC and advanced GC were 0.53%, 0.07%, 0.20% and 0.33%, respectively. A multivariate Cox analysis not accounting for the extent of AG and/or I...
