  • Infection by Campylobacter pylori appears to play a major role in the etiology of gastric disease, but the nature of impairment evoked by this pathogen in gastric mucosal defense is not well understood. We present here evidence that the extracellular material elaborated by this microorganism exhibits lipolytic activity capable of gastric mucosal lipid degradation. The colonies of bacteria, cultured from antral mucosal biopsy specimens of patients undergoing endoscopy, were washed with saline… CONTINUE READING
