As evidence of the protective role of Hp in GERD, the following arguments are described: the development of Hp-associated gastritis in the fundus is accompanied by a decrease in the hydrochloric acid secretion (by inhibiting the production of histamine along with increased synthesis of interleukin (IL)-1[beta] and tumor necrotizing factor (TNF-a)); proximal gastritis improves the gastroesophageal junction barrier function; hypergastrinemia associated with Hp infection leads to increased pressure of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), high urease activity of Hp partially neutralizes the aggressive action of hydrochloric acid; Hp can increase antisecretory effect of main antisecretory drugs--proton pump inhibitors [14, 15, 18].
