The cag pathogenicity island is a well-characterized virulence determinant. It is composed of 32 genes that encode a type IV bacterial secretion system and is linked with a more severe clinical outcome. The following chapters will explore the manipulation of bacterial factors in order to understand their role in gastric mucosal disease.
