Special Issue Information
Epidemiologic studies have clearly demonstrated that chronic inflammation predisposes to tumor formation in various organs, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) caused by hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, gastric cancer caused by Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection, colorectal cancer caused by inflammatory bowel diseases, bile duct cancer by primary sclerosing cholangitis, and esophageal cancer caused by Barrett’s esophagus. In this special issue, we will focus on the role of inflammation on the pathogenesis of gastrointestinal / heapatobiliary cancers. We welcome submissions of original research and review manuscripts that cover basic and/or clinical aspects of inflammation-associated cancers in digestive organs.
