[helicobacter pylori and chronic gastritis in the gastric biopsy material in a group of randomly selected adult inhabitants of estonia].the occurrence of helicobacter pylori (hp) was examined in 227 subjects randomly selected among the estonian population of town kuressaare. hp was present in 166 subjects (73%). in cases of normal mucosa both in antrum and body hp was lacking. if normal gastric body mucosa was associated with antral gastritis hp was found in both regions. more often the contamination of antral and body mucosa with hp occurred in case of superficial gastritis. in subjects with atrophic gastritis the occurrence of ...19902281981
helicobacter pylori infection in estonian population: is it a health problem?the role of helicobacter pylori infection in traditionally noncommunicable diseases as chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer and gastric carcinoma became more evident during the first decade of h. pylori studies. to analyse and evaluate the prevalence of h. pylori infection in estonia as a population health problem, the data of three randomly selected samples of estonian population aged over 15 years were used. the infection rate assessments in two representative samples of the population (kambja 157 ...19958541042
seropositivity to helicobacter pylori heat shock protein 60 is strongly associated with intensity of chronic inflammation, particularly in antrum mucosa: an extension of an 18-year follow-up study of chronic gastritis in saaremaa, estonia.helicobacter pylori is a cause of chronic gastritis and leads to development of atrophy in some cases. there is evidence that the heat shock protein 60 (hsp60) of h. pylori is involved in induction of chronic inflammation. seroprevalence of igg antibodies to h. pylori hsp60 in an adult cohort from saaremaa, estonia (68 persons, median age 57 years), with a high prevalence of antibodies to cell surface proteins of h. pylori (92%) and a well characterized dynamics of chronic gastritis in an 18-yea ...200111267848
immune response to helicobacter pylori and its association with the dynamics of chronic gastritis in the antrum and corpus.the aim of the study was to establish possible factors which play a role in progression of gastritis to atrophic gastritis in long-term follow-up among the estonian population, to assess the association between the host immune response and different helicobacter pylori antigens and autoantigens in relation to the histological parameters of gastritis in the antrum and corpus. elisa and immunoblot were used for detection of igg to h. pylori acid glycine-extracted cell surface proteins, caga protei ...200818754320
