Abstract: Infection with CagA-positive H. pylori strains is associated with an increased prevalence and intensity of antral atrophy and intestinal metaplasia, in addition to higher degrees of gastritis. Our results seem to suggest that the CagA status could be a helpful parameter to define a subgroup of H. pylori-infected patients at increased risk of developing gastric adenocarcinoma.
