Background: Helicobacter pylori (H.P.) is a very common bacteria that affect half of the population. It has been incriminated in cancer stomach and gastric lymphoma.
Objective: This work aims to discuss the relation and mechanism of H.P. in causing gastric carcinoma.
Review of Literature: H.P. has different methods of transmission like oral-oral, fecal-oral, gastro-oral and gastro gastric. The microbiological features of H.P. support its growth and protect it from oxidative damage that enhancing its survival rate. H.P. is now determined as one of the most critical carcinogenic infectious agents because it's a high risk of developing stomach cancer. Gastric cancer is the third type of cancer leading to death and it is due to different causes and risk factors. There are many factors affect the outcome of patients who had infected with H.P. and increase the risk of developing cancer. These are environmental, host-related and virulence factors. All of these factors participate in the development of gastric cancer by two mechanisms, direct inflammatory effects and indirect through mutations in the cell-cycle regulating genes.
Conclusion: H.P. infection has an important carcinogenic role in the development of cancer stomach. Eradication of H.P. will decrease the risk of developing stomach cancer.
