Helicobacter pylori infection in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
Polyzos SA et al. – Helicobacter pylori (Hp) infection may represent one more hit contributing to the pathogenesis of nonalcoholic fatty liver [NAFL], though not to the progression from NAFL to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis [NASH]. These results warrant further validation. If confirmed, eradicating Hp infection may have certain therapeutic perspectives in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) treatment.
