C1q, as a LAIR-1 ligand, maintains monocytes quiescence and possess immunosuppressive properties. To understand the roles and molecular mechanisms, C1q mediated inflammation cytokines and several pivotal proteins in THP-1 cells after H. pylori infection were detected. The results showed that the expression of IL-8, IL-10, LAIR-1, phosphorylated/total JNK, phosphorylated/total p38-MAPK, phosphorylated/total AKT and phosphorylated/total NF-κB were up-regulated significantly in THP-1 cells after H. pylori infection. There was significant upregulation in IL-10 concentration, phosphorylated/total p38-MAPK and phosphorylated/total AKT, and downregulation in phosphorylated/total JNK in non-H. pylori infected THP-1 cells pretreated with C1q. C1q was also able to increase IL-8 and IL-10 production, and reduce LAIR-1 and phosphorylated/total p38-MAPK expression in pretreatment-C1q THP-1 cells after H. pylori infection. These results together indicated that H. pylori might induce IL-8 and IL-10 production through JNK, p38-MAPK, PI3K/AKT and NF-κB signaling pathway. C1q manipulate LAIR-1 to regulation IL-8 and IL-10 secretion in THP-1 cells after H. pylori infection through the p38-MAPK signaling pathway. This information is helpful to further understand the role and mechanisms of C1q on inflammation cytokines secretion in monocytes after H. pylori infection.

Autoimmune gastritis (AIG) is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastric mucosa, mainly described in adults presenting with pernicious anemia. It results from antibody-mediated destruction of par...
Gastric acid secretion is compromised in chronic Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection allowing overgrowth of non-H. pylori gastric bacteria (NHGB) in the stomach.
Toxic adjuvant is considered as an indispensable constituent for oral Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) vaccines. However, the elaborate role of toxic adjuvant in the initiation of adaptive immune respo...
Helicobacter pylori urease (HPU) is a key virulence factor that enables bacteria to colonize and survive in the stomach. We early demonstrated that HPU, independent of its catalytic activity, induced ...
Halitosis is a common complaint among people which has various socioeconomic effects. The prevalence of halitosis includes a variety of 22% up to 50% in different societies. According to studies, ther...

The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of three different antibiotic regimens against Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori).
Infections with organisms of the genus HELICOBACTER, particularly, in humans, HELICOBACTER PYLORI. The clinical manifestations are focused in the stomach, usually the gastric mucosa and antrum, and the upper duodenum. This infection plays a major role in the pathogenesis of type B gastritis and peptic ulcer disease.
A spiral bacterium active as a human gastric pathogen. It is a gram-negative, urease-positive, curved or slightly spiral organism initially isolated in 1982 from patients with lesions of gastritis or peptic ulcers in Western Australia. Helicobacter pylori was originally classified in the genus CAMPYLOBACTER, but RNA sequencing, cellular fatty acid profiles, growth patterns, and other taxonomic characteristics indicate that the micro-organism should be included in the genus HELICOBACTER. It has been officially transferred to Helicobacter gen. nov. (see Int J Syst Bacteriol 1989 Oct;39(4):297-405).
Ulceration of the GASTRIC MUCOSA due to contact with GASTRIC JUICE. It is often associated with HELICOBACTER PYLORI infection or consumption of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
A species of gram-negative, spiral-shaped bacteria found in the gastric mucosa that is associated with chronic antral gastritis. This bacterium was first discovered in samples removed at endoscopy from patients investigated for HELICOBACTER PYLORI colonization.
Ulcer that occurs in the regions of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT which come into contact with GASTRIC JUICE containing PEPSIN and GASTRIC ACID. It occurs when there are defects in the MUCOSA barrier. The common forms of peptic ulcers are associated with HELICOBACTER PYLORI and the consumption of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
Peptic Ulcer Disease
Peptic Ulcer Disease - stomach ulcer, duodenal ulcers used to refer to all types of peptic ulcers. A peptic ulcer is an erosion in a segment of the Gastrointestinal (GI) muscularis mucosae, typically in the stomach (gastric ulcer) or the first few cent...
