The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is not a reliable criterion for distinguishing between gastric ulceration and carcinoma of the stomach. If the maximal acid output (MAO) = 0 mEq/h, the lesion is, with few exceptions, a carcinoma. Combining the ESR and MAO did not provide a more reliable criterion for distinguishing between gastric ulcer and carcinoma of the stomach, than when MAO alone is taken into consideration.
