  • Abstract.Objectives:Little information is available on the potential role of α-defensins derived from neutrophils during H. pylori infection, or the effect of H. pylori on the α-defensin release. The effects of H. pylori on human granulocytes were investigated in vitro by flow cytometry and ELISA. Additionally we sought to identify by immunohistochemistry the α-defensins within the gastric mucosa of patients infected with H. pylori.Materials and Methods:The intracellular expression of… CONTINUE READING
