BACKGROUND AND AIMS It is unknown whether Helicobacter pylori infection activates complement in vivo. Mucosal deposition of various activation products of the complement system may contribute to the pathogenesis of chronic gastritis and was therefore studied by immunohistochemistry. PATIENTS AND METHODS Ethanol fixed antrum or body gastric tissue sections from 24 patients infected with H pylori (determined by bacterial immunohistochemistry) and 22 uninfected patients were examined by… CONTINUE READING
