Abstract

Recent studies have suggested a link between iron-deficiency anemia and Helicobacter pylori infection. In the current study, strains of H. pylori derived from patients with iron-deficiency anemia showed enhanced Fe ion uptake and Fe ion-dependent rapid growth compared with those from patients with non-iron-deficiency anemia. H. pylori with enhanced Fe ion-uptake ability may be a causative factor for iron-deficiency anemia.
