Digestive tumours in Latin America

Guest Editors: Christian Caglevic and Mauricio Mahave

This special issue focuses on the challenges faced in Latin America due to its high prevalence of digestive tract neoplasias.  There has been a steady increase in the incidence and mortality of gastric cancer in the region linked to economic growth and populations that are living longer and consuming more red meat and related products.

The five original articles in this issue represent significant contributions to a complex and extremely important field. They are all available in both Spanish and English.
