Despite the fact that the association of Helicobacter pylori with an increased risk of gastric cancer is well documented, the exact mechanisms of this association have not been elucidated. Our aim was to shed some light on these mechanisms by studying the relationship of H. pylori CagA status to gastric cell proliferation and apoptosis, since both play an important role in gastrointestinal epithelial cell turnover and carcinogenesis. We studied fifty patients [32 men, 18 women, median age 39.5… CONTINUE READING
