    Keywords : ; Helicobacter pylori; Helicobacter felis; Matrix metalloproteinase; macrophage; Gastritis;

    Abstract : Helicobacter pylori infects the stomach and areas of gastric metaplasia in the duodenum. Theinfection leads to peptic ulcers or gastric cancers in 10-20% of infected individuals, while themajority are more or less asymptomatic. However, active chronic gastritis develops in all infectedindividuals, often in association with atrophic gastritis. READ MORE

    Abstract : Growth of pathological new vessels (angiogenesis) in the eye is a leading cause of severe vision-loss. Ocular angiogenesis is seen in the anterior part of the eye as in corneal neovascularization, or in the posterior part as in diabetic retinopathy, retinopathy of prematurity or age-related macular degeneration.
