Pylori H. pylori is an active stimulator of both the innate and acquired immune responses. Local innate recognition of H. pylori by epithelial cells is thought to be an important disease deter‐ minant. There are also strong local and systemic antibody and cell-mediated immune re‐ sponse 11. The innate immune response H. pylori colonization of the gastric mucosa triggers innate host defense mechanism thus stimulating the expression of pro-inflammatory and anti-bacterial factors by gastric epithe‐ lial cells (Antos et al, 2001).

Pylori infection. Helicobacter spp. produce urease, which breaks down urea into ammonia and bicarbonate ions. In stomach, ammonia has a buffering effect that may help Helicobacter spp. colonize on mucosa in the acidic gastric environment. In addition, ammonia is directly toxic to gastric epithelial cells. H. pylori infection is associated with increased gastric acid secretion (hyper‐ acidity), which causes inflammation of the gastric antrum (antral gastritis) and duodenal ul‐ ceration. It has been proposed that hyperacidity is caused by hypergastrinemia resulting from the inhibition of somatostatin-secreting cells (somatostatin inhibits gastrin release).
