This study looks at the current evidence in support or against the role of H. pylori as a potential trigger of autoimmune rheumatic and skin diseases, as well as organ specific autoimmune diseases.
The data from this study shows that infection with H. pylori is associated with increased systemic inflammation.
“This suggests one potential mechanism to explain the extra-gastrointestinal conditions associated with H. pylori infection.”
