Background: It has been suggested that Helicobacter pylori strains containing the cytotoxin-associated gene A (cagA), and s1m1 genotype of vacuolating cytotoxin gene A (vacA) may have been associated with peptic ulcer disease. The aim of the present study was to analyze such an association of cagA presence and vacA subtypes of H. pylori with histopathological findings in patients with gastritis.
