Author information

Department of Microbiology, Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.


A species was detected in the lipid extract of human red blood cells and human and pig stomach tissue which was specifically recognised by isolates of Campylobacter pylori. The levels of this lipid were higher in human stomach antrum than in fundus and in adult compared with infant tissue samples. Chemical treatment of the purified substance suggests that it is a novel glycerolipid.
