abstract

  • These results suggest that effective treatment of MLS with low-dose radiation therapy alone is feasible and safe, and allows stomach preservation. Longer follow-up evaluation is required to determine the long-term efficacy of this treatment approach and its side effects. Further studies should clarify the indications for radiotherapy in H pylori-negative or antibiotic-resistant cases of MLS.
