Benberin V, Bektayeva R, Karabayeva R, Lebedev A, Akemeyeva K, Paloheimo L, Syrjänen K: Prevalence of H. pylori Infection and Atrophic Gastritis Among Symptomatic and Dyspeptic Adults in Kazakhstan. A Hospital-based Screening Study Using a Panel of Serum Biomarkers. Anticancer Res. 2013 Oct;33(10):4595-4602.

In collaboration with the Medical Center of the President’s affairs Administration of the Republic of Kazakhstan and Biohit Oyj, a population-based screening with the GastroPanel test was conducted in Astana (2012-2013), of which the scientific report is now published in a widely distributed international cancer journal: Anticancer Research 2013;33(10).

Chief medical Director Kari Syrjänen, Biohit Oyj: ”The authors concluded that in countries like Kazakhstan where the annual incidence of gastric cancer (>20 cases per 100.000 inhabitants; vs. 8/100.000 in Finland) is alarmingly high, the GastroPanel test developed by Biohit Oyj should be the cost-effective diagnostic tool for large-scale, population-based screening of gastric cancer.”
