Anaemia is due to a significant reduction in the oxygen carrying property of the blood. In pernicious anaemia it is due to a deficiency in the secretion of a substance by the cells of the stomach which is necessary for the absorption of vitamin B-12. Administration of vitamin B-12 by injection at regular intervals throughout the sufferer's lifetime is necessary. There is a small increased risk of cancer of the stomach.
