Statins are commonly used as cholesterol-lowering medications and have shown effectiveness in the primary and secondary prevention of heart attack and stroke. In addition, several recent studies of human cancer cell lines and animal tumor models indicate that statins may have chemopreventive properties through the arresting of cell-cycle progression. The chemopreventive effect of statins was demonstrated in some kind of human tumors including colorectal cancer. In addition, recent one large epidemiologic study showed that statins decreased risk of gastric cancer. On the other hands, it has been well known that Helicobacter pylori infection induces gastric atrophy and intestinal metaplasia, which are premalignant lesions of gastric cancer. Progression of these premalignant lesions could be limited by H. pylori eradication. In addition, a recent double blind randomization study revealed that simvastatin as adjuvant to standard therapy improves significantly the H. pylori eradication rate. Therefore, investigators conjecture that statins may have an adjuvant role for inhibition of gastric carcinogenesis. investigators aim to evaluate the role of statins in gastric carcinogenesis by observing the changes of gastric inflammation under statins.

Placebo Comparator: Control group
Drug: Arm1: Statin
Study1 (only H. pylori infected patients) Arm1: All patients undergo H. pylori eradication therapy after 2 weeks from the endoscopic submucosal dissection. In this arm2, all patients take statins for 6 months. Then, follow-up endoscopy for gastric biopsy and CLO test will be performed after 6.5 months from the endoscopic submucosal dissection.
Study2 (only H. pylori non-infected patients) Arm1: In this arm2, all patients start taking statins after 2 weeks from the endoscopic submucosal dissection. Follow-up endoscopy for gastric biopsy will be performed after 6.5 months from the endoscopic submucosal dissection.
Placebo Comparator: Statin group
Drug: Arm2: Placebo
Study1 (only H. pylori infected patients) Arm2: All patients undergo H. pylori eradication therapy after 2 weeks from the endoscopic submucosal dissection. In this arm2, all patients take placebos for 6 months. Then, follow-up endoscopy for gastric biopsy and CLO test will be performed after 6.5 months from the endoscopic submucosal dissection.
Study2 (only H. pylori non-infected patients) Arm2: In this arm2, all patients start taking placebos after 2 weeks from the endoscopic submucosal dissection. Follow-up endoscopy for gastric biopsy will be performed after 6.5 months from the endoscopic submucosal dissection.
