Guideline open for public comment: Cancer surveillance in gastric intestinal metaplasia

Review the guideline and supporting materials to share your thoughts by Thursday, June 6.

AGA Institute is seeking public comment on a new guideline for the management of gastric intestinal metaplasia (GIM).

Screening for gastric cancer (either population-wide or in select populations), management of patients with dysplasia of the gastric mucosa, management of patients with gastric adenocarcinoma, and diagnostic endoscopy in patients with symptoms are beyond the scope of this current guideline.
