BACKGROUND Human beta-defensin 2 (hBD-2) plays a role in the innate defence system at mucosal surfaces. Colonisation of Helicobacter pylori in the stomach is an important pathological factor in gastrointestinal illnesses, including gastritis, peptic ulcer, and gastric adenocarcinoma. AIMS To evaluate the antibacterial role of hBD-2 against H pylori infection in the gastric mucosa. SUBJECTS Biopsied gastric mucosa specimens from H pylori positive (n=6) and H pylori negative (n=6) individuals… CONTINUE READING
