In vivo, gastric infection with Helicobacter pylori leads to substantial production of the inflammatory cytokines IL-1, IL-6, TNF-alpha, and IL-8. H. pylori strains that contain the cag pathogenicity island (cag+) and are associated with ulceration and gastric carcinoma induce greater cytokine production than cag- strains. Expression of these cytokines is(More)
Gastric infection with Helicobacter pylori activates a mucosal inflammatory response by mononuclear cells and neutrophils that includes expression of cytokines interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 beta), IL-6, tumor necrosis factor alpha, and IL-8. In this study, we analyzed the IL-8 response of human gastric cancer cell lines (Kato III, AGS, and MKN28) to H. pylori(More)
Approximately 60% of Helicobacter pylori strains are cagA+ and this genotype is more frequently associated with duodenal ulcer disease. Although most wild-type cagA+ strains are both cytotoxigenic and induce enhanced Interleukin-8 (IL-8) secretion in gastric epithelial cells, isogenic cagA- mutants retain full activity in these assays; thus, cagA appears to(More)
Helicobacter pylori is associated with gastritis and peptic ulcer disease in humans. We have identified a homolog of the chaperonin cpn60 family of heat shock proteins in H. pylori, referred to as Hp54K. Hp54K, purified from water-extractable H. pylori proteins, migrated as a single band at 54 kDa by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel(More)
With the proliferation of web applications and web services, attacks such as cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection etc have increased dramatically. Apart from these well known attacks, it has been shown that side-channel leaks in web applications can be used to infer sensitive user information - [5]. For example, a side-channel attack may use the packet(More)
Helicobacter pylori is a major cause of chronic antral gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. Further definition is needed of the factors that determine whether infected individuals remain asymptomatic, or ultimately develop ulceration of the mucosa or transformation to malignancy. To explore the possibility that host response to H. pylori may play a role in(More)
For Helicobacter pylori, the hsp60 heat shock protein encoded by hspB is being considered as a potential candidate for subunit vaccines. We investigated the humoral and cellular responses to H. pylori hsp60 and its cross-reactivity with the homologous Mycobacterium bovis p65 protein and autologous human hsp60 protein. H. pylori-infected persons had(More)
To optimize performance, modern processors have features like nonblocking and pipelined caches along with support for data/instruction prefetching. However, some of these features inadvertently thwart carefully designed attacks on cryptographic algorithms. The attacks belong to the class of side channel attacks wherein subtle leakage of information through(More)
