BACKGROUND Limited data are available on the prevalence of CagA and VacA Helicobacter pylori antibodies in children. The aim of this study was to investigate the antibody prevalence to the H. pylori virulence factors CagA and VacA in symptomatic and asymptomatic children with H. pylori infection and to correlate these antibodies with the severity of gastric inflammation or density of H. pylori organisms in the gastric mucosa. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-three symptomatic children and 132… CONTINUE READING
