My research area is the translation research of gastro and gastrointestinal diseases, mainly focused on the role of H. pylori in association with host and different environmental factors to induce gastric inflammation leading to gastric cancer. For the past few years, I have studied the blood sugar antigens LeY, LeX, sLeX and it’s synthesize fucosylated enzymes (FUTs) enzymes in gastric inflammation leading to gastric cancer. I am trying to understand how the H. pylori association with different environmental factors initiates and persistence of gastric inflammation which leads to carcinogenesis. Moreover, I attempt to apply the imminent gained for discovering improved therapy against persistence inflammation by utilizing dietary anti-inflammatory agents.
