Abstract Helicobacter pylori is the most frequent cause of infection-induced cancer worldwide. Gastric carcino-genesis is the consequence of the important and life-long inflammation induced by H. pylori in the stomach. Gastric carcinogenesis, can be studied in many ways. In this chapter, we focus on some aspects concerning the bacteria, and others concerning the host. On the bacterial side, the methods exploring the presence of the cag pathogenicity island including cagA and the consequences on epithelial cells are presented. On the host side, tissue microarray, immunohistochemistry and chromogenic in situ hybridization (CISH) are described.
