Abstract The worldwide incidence and mortality of gastric cancer (GC) remain high, and new concepts for diagnosis and treatment are needed. In this review, we summarize recent studies that applied next-generation sequencing approaches and also report the latest development in microRNA research. Two recently published studies identified somatic mutations in ARID1A gene in GC using exome sequencing. On the other hand, dysregulation of microRNA expression can alter processes such as proliferation, apoptosis, invasion, and metastasis. These novel markers may prove to be useful in earlier diagnosis and as prognostic or predictive markers in patients with GC . © 2012 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
