Immunohistochemical Ki67staining in AG with IM in presence of cancer. KI67 staining in normal gastric mucosa was limited to epithelial cell of glandular neck (upper left) but was increased in presence of inflammatory (upper right), metaplastic (down left) and neoplastic changes (down right). The epithelial staining of Ki67 was significantly different in all groups (Kruskal-Wallis H = 57.31 p = 0.0001) with a progressive increase from controls to AG and IM in patients without gastric cancer (Mann-Whitney’s U test p = 0.0001) and to intestinal type gastric cancer (Mann-Whitney’s U test p = 0.001)
