Abstract

Several studies have investigated potential role of Helicobacter pylori (Hp) in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Postulated mechanisms are various, even though results are still controversial. Here we propose an overview of actual knowledge about this topic, comparing studies in favour with those against the relationship between Hp and atherosclerosis.
