Studies of molecular mechanisms of neoplastic transfromation are being under the thorough investigation, reveal the new genes involved into the tumor development. These genes and their products are potential tumor markers and levels of their expression can be detected using modern assays characterized by high specificity and sensitivity. The review highlights the current status of the molecular diagnostics of gastric cancer, including protein and nucleic acids biomarkers. The genetic and epigenetic changes, which are detected in the malignant and nonmalignant tumor tissue DNA and in the blood plasma DNA from tumor bearing patients, are summarized.
