Gastric cancer (GC) leads to some 700,000 deaths each year. A significant risk factor for GC is being infected with the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) bacterium, which infects almost half of the world’s population. When DNA gets damaged, it can cause genetic changes that lead to cancer. Dr. Maman’s lab created a map of the damage caused by H. pylori infection in DNA. The lab now aims to harness these findings to develop tools for early diagnosis of cancerous processes in infected individuals.
