Abstract

Previous studies reported an epidemiological association between CagA-positive H. pylori strains and pre-eclampsia. As antibodies anti-CagA cross-react with endothelial cells and trophoblast cells show an endothelial phenotypic profile, we hypothesized that anti-CagA antibodies may recognize antigens of cytotrophoblast cells, thus impairing their function.
