Enhanced expression of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase in Helicobacter pylori-infected human gastric mucosa modulates Th1/Th2 pathway and interleukin 17 production.


BACKGROUND Indoleamine 2,3 dioxygenase (IDO) interferes with immune responses. Host immune response against Helicobacter pylori is involved in the persistence of the infection and its related diseases. AIM To investigate the role of IDO in the regulation of Th1/Th2 and Th17 pathways in H. pylori infection. METHODS Gastric biopsy samples were taken from… (More)
