BackgroundHelicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection triggers both local inflammation, usually in gastric mucosa, and chronic systemic inflammation. It is assumed that this local and systemic inflammation is caused by extracellular products excreted by H. pylori. The aim of this study was to investigate the possible association between H. pylori infection and a local inflammatory response in the airway by using exhaled breath condensate technique.
