Previously, immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies to five antigens with a relative molecular mass of between 15 and 30 kDa from Helicobacter pylori were found to be significantly more frequent in H. pylori-infected patients than in noninfected patients. In this study, these specific low-molecular-mass (LMW) antigens were separated by ultrafiltration of(More)
Since October 1988 till July 1995, 35 children (mean age 16 +/- 15.5 months) with classical hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) were examined for the presence of verocytotoxin (VT)-producing Escherichia coli (VTEC) infection. Stool samples from all patients were cultured for VTEC strains and tested for free fecal neutralizable VT. Serum samples from 18 patients(More)
BACKGROUND Helicobacter (H.) pylori participates significantly on the pathogeny of chronic gastritis, duodenal a gastric ulcer, carcinoma and lymphoma of the stomach. Attention was attracted also by some extragastric diseases, including diabetes mellitus, where the elevated antibodies levels against H. pylori was found. The aim of the work was to determine(More)
The authors examined 263 children and adolescents aged 5-20 years who suffered from so-called non-ulcerative dyspepsia or epigastric pain, because of the suspected presence of Campylobacter pylori. In 31.9% of the examined subjects direct microbiological methods revealed its presence in the gastroduodenal mucosa. The confidence limit of positive results of(More)
UNLABELLED A total of 156 Helicobacter pylori strains isolated from adult patients (81 men, 75 women) with diagnosis of gastritis (43 strains GAS) and gastric ulcer (113 strains GU) were analyzed for the production of CagA protein by quantitative and qualitative immunoblot methods. 80% of gastric ulcer group strains (84% in men, 73% in women) produced CagA(More)
