A high prevalence of antibody to cag A has been observed in H. pylori seropositive patients (HP + ) living in developed countries. This is felt to be correlated with the development of serious sequelae of this infection. We examined the sero-prevalence of antibody to cag A and other specific H. pylori antigens in symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals living in Kashan. Sera from 37 patients whose HP status was determined by culture, histology, RUT, and ELISA were enrolled in this study. The…

Role of H. pylori Infection (Serology, PCR) in Chronic Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura in an Endemic Country: A Case Control Study,Tehran, IRAN

H. pylori infection (serologically) is high in young Iranian population and the management of mild-to-moderate chronic ITP in Iranian patients, especially those with a recent onset of disease, should include an investigation for and eradication of infection with H.pylori.

Role of Helicobacter Pylori in Nasal Polyp Formation: A Case-control Study in Tehran, Iran

H. pylori infection may play a key role in the formation of nasal polyps and long-term antibiotics treatment in cases with nasal polyp, especially in casesWith severe chronic rhinosinusitis where patients do not respond to surgery or steroids, may be useful.

Helicobacter pylori -DNA in nasal polyp tissues in compare with inferior nasal turbinate tissues: A case- control study in Tehran, Iran

Whether or not H. pylori play a pathogenic role could not be determined from the data obtained in this investigation, but long-term antibiotic treatment in cases with nasal polyp that do not respond to surgery or steroids may be useful.

Non-invasive diagnostic tests for Helicobacter pylori infection.

To compare the diagnostic accuracy of urea breath test, serology, and stool antigen test, used alone or in combination, for diagnosis of H pylori infection in symptomatic and asymptomatic people, a meta-analysis was performed by using the hierarchical summary receiver operating characteristic (HSROC) model.

Unusual infections in resected adenoid of children: PCR for C. pneumonia, M. pneumonia, H. pylori.

The decision for use of antibiotics to eradicate these unusual infections in recurrent or chronic adenotonsillar infections before adenoid surgery (with or without rhinosinusitis or chronic ear infection) needs Randomized Controlled Trial studies.



Use of Immunoblot Assay To Define Serum Antibody Patterns Associated with Helicobacter pylori Infection and with H. pylori-Related Ulcers

Using an immunoblot assay with an antigen from strain ATCC 43579, the antibodies which were good markers of colonization and the antibody patterns associated with ulcers or atrophy were determined and may help to optimize the composition of antigenic preparations for serologic detection of H. pylori colonization.

Serological response to specific Helicobacter pylori antigens: antibody against CagA antigen is not predictive of gastric cancer in a developing country.

The results of this study suggest that the cagA gene is not associated with the development of more serious gastroduodenal disease; however, it cannot be ruled out that this gene may be an important but insufficient factor in some disease processes.

Detection of Helicobacter pylori gene expression in human gastric mucosa

Results indicate that RT-PCR is a sensitive and specific method for the detection of the presence of H. pylori and the expression of H-pylori genes in human gastric tissue.

Antigen recognition during progression from acute to chronic infection with a cagA-positive strain of Helicobacter pylori

This report supports intrafamilial transmission of H. pylori in twins with acutely infected twin boys and monitors the antibody response over time of the family and the adult male by Western blotting and use of a commercial kit.

Detection in an enzyme immunoassay of an immune response to a recombinant fragment of the 128 kilodalton protein (CagA) ofHelicobacter pylori

Data indicate that the recombinant protein of the CagA is a reliable antigen for detection of infections with Helicobacter pylori strains that are associated with disease.

Molecular characterization of the 128-kDa immunodominant antigen of Helicobacter pylori associated with cytotoxicity and duodenal ulcer.

The nucleotide sequence and expression of an immunodominant antigen of H. pylori and the immune response to the antigen during disease are reported and it is suggested that only bacteria harboring this protein are associated with disease.

Genetic analysis of the cytotoxin-associated gene and the vacuolating toxin gene in Helicobacter pylori strains isolated from Taiwanese patients.

The strong association (98%) of cagA+ strains with Taiwanese patients suggests that the cagC+ phenotype could not be used as a single marker of high-risk patients in Taiwan, and sequence analysis indicates that Taiwanese strains contain different genetic sequences from those in other geographic regions.

Analysis of expression of CagA and VacA virulence factors in 43 strains of Helicobacter pylori reveals that clinical isolates can be divided into two major types and that CagA is not necessary for expression of the vacuolating cytotoxin

This finding shows that although it is present in most cytotoxic strains, CagA is not necessary for the expression of the vacuolating cytotoxin, and is shown to be independent of VacA.

Helicobacter pylori associated with a high prevalence of duodenal ulcer disease and a low prevalence of gastric cancer in a developing nation.

The data suggest that the status of a nation as either 'developed' or 'developing' can not be used to predict the upper gastrointestinal disease profile of its population.

Expression of 120 kilodalton protein and cytotoxicity in Helicobacter pylori.

Antral biopsy culture supernatants from 14 subjects with chronic gastritis, known to have IgA antibodies to the 120 kilodalton protein, showed positive recognition of this antigen in western blots
