Table 2 Degree of atrophy and IM according to the updated Sydney-classification

From: Serological assessment of gastric mucosal atrophy in gastric cancer

   Intestinal GC (n = 59) Diffuse GC (n = 59) Total (n = 118)
Atrophy Antrum* 0.71 ± 0.83 0.21 ± 0.58 0.47 ± 0.76
  Corpus* 0.64 ± 0.83 0.29 ± 0.65 0.47 ± 0.77
  Total* 0.90 ± 0.87 0.32 ± 0.68 0.61 ± 0.83
IM Antrum* 1.32 ± 0.83 0.69 ± 0.72 1.01 ± 0.84
  Corpus* 0.91 ± 0.88 0.51 ± 0.73 0.71 ± 0.83
  Total* 1.47 ± 0.82 0.80 ± 0.76 1.14 ± 0.86
  1. Displayed are mean and standard deviation for the Sydney-scaled degree of glandular atrophy and IM for each antrum and corpus (for "total", the highest score of both localisations was counted). Significant differences between intestinal and diffuse type GC are marked with an asterisk (*) applying a two-sided significance level of p < 0.05.
