OBJECTIVES:We tested whether the interaction between host gastric Lex antigen and the SabA protein of H. pylori determined gastric colonization density.METHODS:A total of 145 H. pylori-infected patients were assessed for their bacterial density and gastric Leb and sialyl-Lex expression. Their corresponding H. pylori isolates were tested for babA2 and sabA… CONTINUE READING
