|Pentose phosphate pathway metabolism and glutathione in the host mucosal response to Helicobacter pylori infection
|Matthews, Geoffrey Mark
|Dept. of Physiology
|Recent studies have suggested a major role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the mediation of Helicobacter pylori associated disease. Hence, the severity of mucosal damage during such infection is likely to be dependent on the ability of mucosal cells to counteract the ROS load. The aim of this thesis was to investigate both the activity of the oxidative pentose pathway of glucose metabolism, and glutathione levels in the host response to Helicobacter pylori infection in both a mouse model and in adult symptomatic patrents.
