BelSU Medical Institute issued an article on helicobacter pylori and risk of coronary heart disease

The article analyzes the data, foreign and the Russian literature about the relationship of Helicobacter pylori infection and the risk of cardiovascular disease. Are analyzed variations of pathogenetic mechanisms of correlation Helicobacter pylori and coronary heart disease risk.

There is increasing evidence that certain microbial agents may have an etiopathogenic role in the development of atherothrombosis. Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium that causes peptic ulcer disease, has been suggested as one of the microbes involved in the development of atherothrombosis. This hypothesis is based on the following observations: a higher prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection in patients with coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, or cerebrovascular disease; the coincidence of Helicobacter pylori infection and cardiovascular risk factors, such as serum cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations and plasma fibrinogen; Helicobacter pylori seropositivity correlates with acute-phase proteins associated with higher risk of coronary disease, such as C-reactive protein, and controversial PCR studies indicating the presence of Helicobacter pylori in atheromas. Analysis of the scientific evidence suggests that Helicobacter pylori infection could indirectly contribute to the development and severity of atherothrombosis and cardiovascular disease. According to our opinion, are required a very large randomized studies to prove the truth of the presence of a possible connection between H. pylori and cardiovascular disease
