Abstract

Abstract This review deals with the induction and expression of immune responses in the human stomach following mucosal immunisation. As prerequisites for developing a Helicobacter pylori vaccine, the role of gastric inflammation, in particular inflammation induced by H. pylori infection, as well as lymphocyte homing within the common mucosal immune system, and the importance of immunisation route are discussed.
