    Background: E-cadherin is an adhesion molecule involved in tumour invasion/metastasis. Silencing of E-cadherin by promoter CpG methylation has been shown in both familial and sporadic gastric cancers. Helicobacter pylori is a class I carcinogen in gastric cancer. Aims: This study was undertaken...

    Long term follow up data are not available for cases of diffuse large B cell gastric lymphoma treated by eradicating Helicobacter pylori alone. We present the case of an 82 year old man with diffuse large B cell lymphoma Iocalised to the stomach which responded to H pylori eradication and which...

    Background & Aims: The increase of apoptotic cells of Helicobacter pylori-infected mucosa suggested that apoptosis could be a major mechanism of cellular damage. However, H. pylori cag pathogenic island(PAI) structure relating to apoptosis research has been little studied. The aim of this study...

    An intensive infiltration of IFN-γ producing T cells of Th1 type is observed in gastric mucosa of the patients with H. pylori infection. A contribution of this cytokine to the inflammation leading to chronic dyspepsia and ulcer has been demonstrated. In H. pylori infected subjects a systemic...

    Background: Helicobacter pylori infection and inflammation increase gastric mucosal permeability, and may develop chronic urticaria, migraine, atopic dermatitis and idiopathic thorombocytopenic purpura. Our aim was to evaluate the effect of a mucosal protective drug, rebamipide, on gastric...
