Helicobacter pylori are spiral-shaped gram-negative bacteria with polar flagella that live near the surface of the human gastric mucosa. They have evolved intricate mechanisms to avoid the bactericidal acid in the gastric lumen and to survive near, to attach to, and to communicate with the human gastric epithelium and host immune system. This interaction sometimes results in severe gastric pathology. H pylori infection is the strongest known risk factor for the development of gastroduodenal… Expand
AN OVERVIEW OF HELICOBACTER PYLORI INFECTIONS WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO PATHOGENESIS AND MECHANISM OF COLONIZATION
Helicobacter pylori is the major causative agent of gastrointestinal diseases. The bacterial pathogen, H. pylori has co-evolved with humans and colonize about 50% of the human population, whichExpand
Virulence Factors of Helicobacter pylori: A Review
TLDR
There are important H. pylori virulence factors that, along with host characteristics and the external environment, have been associated with the different occurrences of diseases and possible associations with the clinical outcome. Expand
PERSISTENT HELICOBACTER PYLORI INFECTION AND HOST RESPONSE
TLDR
It is proposed that H. pylori alters the specificity of type I R-M systems in response to a changing gastric environment, which may lead to adaptation, and that the bacterium can influence the outcome of the interaction. Expand
Prevalence of Helicobacter Pylori Infection in Patients with Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding
TLDR
Evidence supported a link between chronic gastritis of Helicobacter pylori infection in adults and malignancy, specifically gastric lymphoma and adenocarcinoma, which is much higher in developing countries than in developed nations. Expand

TLDR
The latest knowledge about the intriguing interactions of both mucins and their interplay with the pathogen providing protection against infection is presented. Expand
Helicobacter pylori: phenotypes, genotypes and virulence genes.
TLDR
The role of the phenotypes, virulence-related genes and genotypes of H. pylori in the establishment of gastric colonization and the development of associated diseases are summarized. Expand
Helicobacter pylori's Unconventional Role in Health and Disease
TLDR
The story of H. pylori teaches us to look more deeply at the authors' resident microbiome and the complexity of its interactions, both in this complex population and within their own tissues, to gain a better understanding of health and disease. Expand
Bacteriological Investigation of Helicobacter pylori Infections in Patients with Gastric and Duodenal Ulcer
TLDR
Gastric colonization of this bacterium triggers a robust immune response leading to moderate to severe inflammation, which triggers a cascade of mucosal changes that can persist from chronic gastritis, duodenal cancer, meta plasia, dysplasia, carcinoma, to mucosal associated disease. Expand
Structural studies of Helicobacter pylori proteins relevant for gastric colonization
TLDR
The project presented here aims to determine not only the three dimensional structure of proteins playing a role in the virulence of the bacterium, but also their analysis and characterization using an approach of structural genomics, useful for the design of potential new drugs. Expand
Pathogenicity of Helicobacter pylori in cancer development and impacts of vaccination
TLDR
The main strategy for the treatment of gastric cancer is controlling the disease far before its onset using preventive/curative vaccination, and envision that H. pylori-mediated diseases can be controlled by advanced vaccines and immunotherapies. Expand

Helicobacter pylori is invasive and it may be a facultative intracellular organism
TLDR
Evidence is described suggesting that the intracellular presence of H.’pylori plays a role in the induction of diseases, in immune evasion, and in life‐long persistence of the bacterium in the stomach of a majority of humans. Expand

TLDR
There is increasing data on the roles played by bacterial heterogeneity and the virulence of the organism, host factors such as the HLA genotype and immune response, environmental factors and the age of acquisition of infection play in determining these clinical outcomes of the disease. Expand
Rapid Loss of Motility of Helicobacter pylori in the Gastric Lumen In Vivo
TLDR
It is concluded that pepsin limits the persistence of H. pylori in the gastric chymus to only a few minutes by rapidly inhibiting active motility, one of the most critical phases of Helicobacter infection. Expand
Role of Peyer's patches in the induction of Helicobacter pylori-induced gastritis
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that Peyer's patches in the small intestine play critical roles in H. pylori-induced gastritis and that the coccoid form of H.pylori is phagocytosed by dendritic cells in PPs. Expand
Immunology of Helicobacter pylori: insights into the failure of the immune response and perspectives on vaccine studies.
TLDR
Understanding the mechanisms of immune evasion could lead to new opportunities for enhancing eradication and prevention of infection and associated disease. Expand
Key importance of the Helicobacter pylori adherence factor blood group antigen binding adhesin during chronic gastric inflammation.
TLDR
Adherence of H. pylori via BabA appears to be of importance for efficient delivery of VacA and CagA and may play a special role in the pathogenesis of severe histological changes. Expand
Helicobacter pylori outer membrane proteins and gastric inflammation.
TLDR
It has been demonstrated that H pylori is capable of regulating OMP expression in vivo by phase variation, and linkage of cagA and oipA seems to be based on selection in the host. Expand
pH-Regulated Gene Expression of the Gastric Pathogen Helicobacter pylori
TLDR
It is found that acid exposure leads to profound changes in motility of H. pylori, as a larger percentage of acid-exposed bacterial cells displayed motility and moved at significantly higher speeds. Expand
The Role of Decay-accelerating Factor as a Receptor for Helicobacter pylori and a Mediator of Gastric Inflammation*♦
TLDR
Results indicate that DAF may regulate H. pylori-epithelial cell interactions relevant to pathogenesis, and that genetic deficiency of DAF attenuated the development of inflammation among H. sicca-infected mice. Expand
Intracellular, intercellular, and stromal invasion of gastric mucosa, preneoplastic lesions, and cancer by Helicobacter pylori.
TLDR
H pylori penetrates normal, metaplastic, and neoplastic gastric epithelium in vivo, intracellularly, or interstitially to cause a strong immune-inflammatory response and promote gastric carcinogenesis. Expand
