BACKGROUND The babA2 gene, which encodes a blood-group antigen-binding adhesin that mediates attachment of Helicobacter pylori to human Lewis(b) antigens on gastric epithelial cells, has been associated with a higher risk of peptic ulcer and gastric cancer. The purpose of this study was to ascertain the frequency of babA2 genotype in H. pylori strains of patients with peptic ulcer and to correlate with other virulence factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS vacA, cagA, and babA2 genotypes of H. pylori… CONTINUE READING
