The article presents an in-depth description of helicobacter pylori and its link with cancer. The International Agency for Cancer Research has recognized a cause-and-effect relationship between Helicobacter pylori and gastric adenocarcinoma in year 1994. Gastric cancer is known to be the second most commonly diagnosed fatal cancer.

    Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection appears protective against oesophageal adenocarcinoma (EA) risk. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are released in the presence of HP infection. In MMP2 wild-type individuals, HP was significantly protective of EA risk (adjusted odds ratio: 0.29; 95% confidence...

    Background It is important to know the causes of dyspepsia to establish the therapeutic approach. Dyspepsia is a frequent syndrome in our country, where there are restrictions to endoscopy and high prevalence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection.
