Inverse association between a pro-inflammatory genetic profile and Helicobacter pylori seropositivity among patients with chronic atrophic gastritis: enhanced elimination of the infection during disease progression?


BACKGROUND Helicobacter pylori infection is a key risk factor for chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG), an established precursor of gastric cancer. There is increasing evidence of frequent clearance of the infection during progression of CAG. We aimed to assess the association between host inflammatory polymorphisms and H. pylori seropositivity among CAG… (More)
