Infection with virulent strains of Helicobacter pylori is not associated with ischaemic heart disease: evidence from a population-based case-control study of myocardial infarction.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Although the majority of evidence does not support association between Helicobacter pylori infection and ischaemic heart disease, the nature of this relationship may differ when virulence of the infecting strains are examined. METHODS AND RESULTS The prevalence of IgG antibody evidence of infection with CagA positive stains of H. pylori was… (More)
