Isolation and Phenotypical Characterization of T-Lymphocytes Isolated from the Gastric Mucosa of Patients With and Without Helicobacter pylori
Infection with the gram-negative bacterium Helicobacter pylori is now accepted as a causative agent in antral type B gastritis and in gastric ulcer disease [1–3]. H. pylori may also be associated with an increased risk of developing gastric cancer [4–6]. However the pathogenic mechanisms by which H. pylori may cause or be involved in these conditions is as yet unknown.
