Management of Helicobacter pylori infection—the Maastricht V/Florence Consensus Report
Important progress has been made in the management of Helicobacter pylori infection and in this fifth edition of the Maastricht Consensus Report, key aspects related to the clinical role of H. pyloriExpand

Traces of Human Migrations in Helicobacter pylori Populations
Helicobacter pylori, a chronic gastric pathogen of human beings, can be divided into seven populations and subpopulations with distinct geographical distributions. These modern populations deriveExpand

Helicobacter pylori infection.
H. pylori is one of the most common bacterial infections in human beings, and its discovery 20 years ago altered the diagnosis and treatment of gastroduodenal disease. This review considers currentExpand

An African origin for the intimate association between humans and Helicobacter pylori
Infection of the stomach by Helicobacter pylori is ubiquitous among humans. However, although H. pylori strains from different geographic areas are associated with clear phylogeographicExpand

Free recombination within Helicobacter pylori.
Sequences of three gene fragments (flaA, flaB, and vacA) from Helicobacter pylori strains isolated from patients in Germany, Canada, and South Africa were analyzed for diversity and for linkageExpand

Probiotic Escherichia coli Nissle 1917 Inhibits Leaky Gut by Enhancing Mucosal Integrity
BACKGROUND Probiotics are proposed to positively modulate the intestinal epithelial barrier formed by intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) and intercellular junctions. Disruption of this border altersExpand

The complete genome sequence of the carcinogenic bacterium Helicobacter hepaticus
Helicobacter hepaticus causes chronic hepatitis and liver cancer in mice. It is the prototype enterohepatic Helicobacter species and a close relative of Helicobacter pylori, also a recognizedExpand

Genome-wide analysis of transcriptional hierarchy and feedback regulation in the flagellar system of Helicobacter pylori.
The flagellar system of Helicobacter pylori, which comprises more than 40 mostly unclustered genes, is essential for colonization of the human stomach mucosa. In order to elucidate the complexExpand

Recombination and mutation during long-term gastric colonization by Helicobacter pylori: Estimates of clock rates, recombination size, and minimal age
The bacterium Helicobacter pylori colonizes the gastric mucosa of half of the human population, resulting in chronic gastritis, ulcers, and cancer. We sequenced ten gene fragments from pairs ofExpand

Gain and Loss of Multiple Genes During the Evolution of Helicobacter pylori
Sequence diversity and gene content distinguish most isolates of Helicobacter pylori. Even greater sequence differences differentiate distinct populations of H. pylori from different continents, butExpand
