Third-party-funded project

Direct Genotoxicity of the Carcinogenic Bacterium Helicobacter Pylori

Project management at the University of Würzburg:

Epidemiology shows a connection between infections of the stomach with Helicobacter Pylori and the incidence of stomach carcinomas. However, the mechanisms of carcinogenesis are not understood. We intend to characterize the observed in vitro genotoxity of the bacterium. Particular attention will be devoted to known Helicobacter-pathogenicity-factors and geographical HP-strain-differences.

Key words:
    Helicobacter pylori

Projekt period: from 07.2002 to 06.2004

Funding institution:
