    Emma Murray
    MRC Immunochemistry Unit, Oxford, United Kingdom
    Infect Immun 70:1481-7. 2002
    ..SP-D may therefore play a significant role in the innate immune response to H. pylori infection...

    Wafa Khamri
    Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College, St Mary s Campus, London, UK
    Helicobacter 12:112-23. 2007
    ..SP-D binds to Helicobacter in vitro, suggesting the involvement of SP-D in Helicobacter-induced immune responses. The aim of this study was to determine the role of SP-D in gastric epithelial defense in vivo...

    Immunoregulation Laboratory, Department of Nephrology and Transplantation, 5th Floor Thomas Guy House, Guy s Hospital Campus, King s College London School of Medicine at Guy s, London SE1 9RT, United Kingdom
    Infect Immun 78:845-53. 2010
    ..Altogether, we can conclude that DCs are potent inducers of IL-23/IL-17 expression following H. pylori stimulation. IL-1/IL-23 as well as H. pylori virulence factors seem to play an important role in mediating this response...

    Amy E Anderson
    Gastroenterology and Hepatology Research, Division of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College London, London, UK
    Eur J Immunol 37:1548-61. 2007
    ..Regulation of TLR9 expression and signalling therefore appears to play an important role in the control of lymphocyte responses to Helicobacter and potentially other luminal microorganisms...

    Peter Mitchell
    Department of Immunology, Division of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College at Hammersmith Hospital, London, United Kingdom
    Infect Immun 75:810-9. 2007
    ..Our results raise the possibility that in chronic H. pylori infection DCs become exhausted after prolonged antigen exposure leading to suboptimal Th1 development. This effect may contribute to persistence of H. pylori infection...
