Helicobacter pylori type IV secretion system injects the oncoprotein CagA into epithelial cells to drive carcinogenesis. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Tegtmeyer et al. (2017) show that a secreted bacterial protease disrupts apical-junctional complexes, paving the way for H. pylori to access the basolateral compartment and trigger pathogenesis.

Helicobacter pylori VacA is a channel-forming toxin unrelated to other known bacterial toxins. Most H. pylori strains contain a vacA gene, but there is marked variation among strains in VacA toxin activity. This variation is attributable to strain-specific variations in VacA amino acid sequences, as well as variations in the levels of VacA transcription and secretion. In this review, we discuss epidemiologic studies showing an association between specific vacA allelic types and gastric cancer, as well as studies that have used animal models to investigate VacA activities relevant to gastric cancer...

Helicobacter pylori is a pathogen involved in gastric diseases such as ulcers and carcinomas. H. pylori's urease is an important virulence factor produced in large amounts by this bacterium. In previous studies, we have shown that this protein is able to activate several cell types like neutrophils, monocytes, platelets, endothelial cells, and gastric epithelial cells. Angiogenesis is a physiological process implicated in growth, invasion and metastization of tumors. Here, we have analyzed the angiogenic potential of H...

Nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain 1 (NOD1) is an intracellular sensor that detects small peptides derived from the cell wall component of intestinal microflora. NOD1 is expressed in both non-hematopoietic cells such as epithelial cells and hematopoietic cells such as antigen-presenting cells. Detection of its ligand by NOD1 leads to innate immune responses through activation of nuclear factor kappa B and type I interferon as well as induction of autophagy. Innate immune responses through NOD1 activation play an indispensable role both in host defense against microbial infection and in the development of gastrointestinal disorders...

Stomach cancer rarely develops in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), and Helicobacter pylori infection may increase the risk of FAP-related gastric cancer. We describe the case of a 64-year-old woman who developed multiple synchronous early gastric cancers without H. pylori infection. Nine cancer lesions were successfully treated by endoscopic submucosal dissection. An immunohistochemical analysis revealed that the tumors were positive for MUC2, MUC6, and CDX2, but negative for MUC5AC, suggesting that the tumors were gastrointestinal mixed type...

Intervenolin analogs with a phenyl substituent at the 2- or 3-position were synthesized. The compounds (3-11) showed weak or no inhibitory activity toward the growth of MKN-74 gastric adenocarcinoma cells, even in the presence or absence of the corresponding Hs738 stromal cells, whereas 2-substituted analogs exhibited selective anti-Helicobacter pylori activity. Introduction of a pendant side chain on the nitrogen alleviated their acute toxicity in mice. The 2-phenyl-substituted analogs are reasonable structural templates for structure-activity relationship studies toward the development of anti-H...

BACKGROUND: Biliary cancers are more common in females, and previous studies have suggested that Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) exists in the biliary system. However, the effects of H. pylori infection and estrogen on the biological behaviors of human biliary epithelium mucosa remain unknown. The present study aimed to clarify their effects on the proliferation, apoptosis, migration and oxidative DNA damage of a human intrahepatic biliary epithelial cell (HIBEC) line in vitro. METHODS: HIBECs were co-cultured with 17β-estradiol (at 10(-9) mol/L, 10(-7) mol/L, and 10(-5) mol/L) and H...

The eradication of Helicobacter pylori reduces the risk of gastric cancer. A clear understanding of the factors underlying mixed infection with multiple clarithromycin-susceptible and clarithromycin-resistant H. pylori strains is necessary to design more effective therapies against H. pylori. We aimed to assess how the abundance and prevalence of H. pylori strains vary after clarithromycin-based eradication therapy. Using gastric wash samples, which represent the entire stomach, we sequentially analyzed the abundance and prevalence of H...

BACKGROUND: Sequential and concomitant therapies are two innovative therapies for Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) eradication. However, the comparative efficacy and safety of these treatments are controversial. Therefore, we aimed to conduct an updated systematic review and meta-analysis of studies that compared these two treatments. METHODS: A search of PubMed, Embase, the Cochrane Library, and Web of Science was carried out. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that compared sequential with concomitant therapies were selected for meta-analysis...

Cytotoxin-associated-gene A (CagA) of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a virulence factor that plays critical roles in H. pylori-induced gastric inflammation. In the present study, gastric biopsies were used for genotyping cagA and vacA genes, determining the autophagic activity, and the severity of gastric inflammation response. It was revealed that autophagy in gastric mucosal tissues infected with cagA(+)H. pylori strains was lower than the levels produced by cagA(-)H. pylori strains, accompanied with accumulation of SQSTM1 and decreased LAMP1 expression...

A 65-year-old man was admitted under emergency to our hospital because of abdominal pain. His current medication history did not include steroids or nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs. He had taken an eradication agent for Helicobacter pylori, and his serum was negative for H. pylori IgG antibody. Abdominal computed tomography indicated gastric perforation;therefore, emergency surgery was performed. Two weeks later, esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a gastric ulcer on the lesser curvature of the gastric angle and bezoars...

Subsets of mature B cell neoplasms are linked to infection with intracellular pathogens such as Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), or Helicobacter pylori. However, the association between infection and the immunoglobulin-secreting (Ig-secreting) B proliferative disorders remains largely unresolved. We investigated whether the monoclonal IgG (mc IgG) produced by patients diagnosed with monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) or multiple myeloma (MM) targets infectious pathogens...

Adjuvants are widely used to enhance the effects of vaccines against pathogen infections. Interestingly, different adjuvants and vaccination routes usually induce dissimilar immune responses, and can even have completely opposite effects. The mechanism remains unclear. In this study, urease B subunit (UreB), an antigen of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) that can induce protective immune responses, was used as a model to vaccinate mice. We investigated the effects of different adjuvants and routes on consequent T cell epitope-specific targeting and protection against H...
