Abstract:


A number of study have suggested a relationship between Helicobacter pylori infection and oxidative stress in the gastric epithelium. The oxidant- induced changes in zinc, iron, and vitamin C increase susceptibility to oxidative injury. Understanding of pathophysiologic mechanisms may provide new therapeutic strategies in treatment of oxidative injury of mucosa.

Keywords:

Helicobacter pylori, zinc, iron, vitamin C, oxidative stress
