ABSTRACT
Short term studies have shown that Helicobacter felis infects the Mongolian gerbil causing gastritis, but the pathological effects of long term H. felis infection in gerbils are unknown. Aims of this study are to evaluate pathology induced by H. felis in the gerbil and to compare effects of H. felis and H. pylori SS1 strain in this model. Gastric pathology induced by H. pylori 551 strain and H. felis in the gerbil differs. Long term H. felis infection results in corpus predominant gastritis, elevated gastrin, enterochromaffin cell hyperplasia and gastric carcinoids.
