Sterilizing immunity against experimental Helicobacter pylori infection is challenge-strain dependent.


The development of a murine model of Helicobacter pylori infection through serial in vivo passage of candidate strains has enabled a quantitative assessment of vaccine efficacy. In this study we compare infection with and protection against challenge from both CagA(+) type I, and CagA(-) type II in vivo adapted isolates. In vivo passage of a type II H… (More)
