About Us

The Stomach cancer Pooling (StoP) Project is a consortium of epidemiological studies of gastric cancer.

The project started in July 2012, based on a core group of 10 studies. Several investigators joined the project during the last few years, and the consortium now counts over 30 studies from different world areas.

The main aim of the StoP Project is to examine the role of several lifestyle and genetic determinants in the aetiology of gastric cancer, through pooled analyses of individual-level data, after central collection and validation of the original datasets.

V. 3.3 of the StoP Project harmonized database has been released in year 2021, including 34 studies and a total of 13,121 cases and 31,420 controls.

The StoP Project is a consortium of epidemiological studies of gastric cancer.
Inclusion criteria for study participation are:

  • case-control study design, including nested case-control and case-cohort derived from cohort studies;
  • inclusion of at least 80 cases of incident, histologically confirmed gastric cancer (including both cardia and non-cardia location).
