The article discusses the role of helicobacter pylori outer membrane proteins in gastroduodenal disease. The gram-negative bacterium Helicobacter pylori is highly adapted for persistent colonization of the human stomach. In Western populations, helicobacter pylori strains that contain 3 genetic markers are associated with an increased risk of gastric adenocarcinoma and peptic ulcer disease, compared with strains that lack these markers.

    Helicobacter pylori is a Gram-negative bacterium that infects over 50% of the world's population. This organism causes various gastric diseases such as chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer, and gastric cancer. H. pylori possesses lipopolysaccharides that share structural similarity to Lewis blood...

    More than 50% of the world's population is infected with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). Chronic infection with this Gram-negative pathogen is associated with the development of peptic ulcers and is linked to an increased risk of gastric cancer. H. pylori secretes many proteinaceous factors...

Antibiotic treatment has been shown to prevent or cure many H. pylori related-diseases. Antibiotic treatment however has become problematic due to antibiotic resistance. Methods...

    When modern humans left Africa ca. 60,000 years ago (60 kya), they were already infected with Helicobacter pylori, and these bacteria have subsequently diversified in parallel with their human hosts. But how long were humans infected by H. pylori prior to the out-of-Africa event? Did this...
