To date, cross-sectional and case-control studies suggest an inverse association between Helicobacter pylori infection and atopic diseases, whereas the immunologic basis has not been studied yet. In this study we investigated T helper (Th) cell function in H. pylori-infected children and compared cytokine responses in atopic and non-atopic groups.
