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.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
