Chronic gastritis represents the paradigmatic histological condition by means of which the various clinical displays develop. Among the several etiologic factors, Helicobacter pylori (Hp) certainly represents a determining element for the promotion of such condition. Several morpho-functional evaluations (parietal cells, peptic cells, acid secretion, peptic(More)
It is generally agreed that Helicobacter pylori (Hp) plays a key role in alterating regulatory factors affecting cellular proliferation during the disease process. During chronic superficial gastritis there is, in case of moderate/severe activity, a foveolar-superficial expansion of immature muco-peptic cells. In the present experience this phenomenon has(More)
Gastric carcinogenesis is a multistep and multifactorial process beginning with chronic gastritis Helicobacter pylori (Hp) induced in most cases. There are some obstacles to an exclusive acceptance of the idea that the relation of Hp with the preneoplastic/neoplastic changes solely develops by means of the chronic gastritis with its atrophic evolution and(More)
