Background & objectives: Several studies have described VacA and CagA as the two important virulence determinants of Helicobacter pylori, which are associated with gastric ulcer (GU) and duodenal ulcer (DU). The aim of present study was to determine the associations of the i and d regions genotypes of H. pylori vacA gene; and cagA status with GU and DU risk. Methods: A total of 177 isolates were cultured from the biopsies of Iranian patients with different geographic origins and genotyped. Data… CONTINUE READING
