The Gastric Cancer Registry will combine data acquired directly from patients with gastric cancer via an online questionnaire with genomic data obtained from blood and tissue samples. The purpose of this registry is to gain better understanding of the causes of gastric cancer, both environmental and genetic; whether certain genomic data can predict outcomes of treatment and survival; as well as explore the issues that effect the quality of life of these patients after diagnosis and treatment.
