Abstract: Glycan-protein interactions are important in pathogen adhesion and infections. H. pylori has adhesins which enables it to bind to glycans on the gastric mucosa and, in the long run, cause gastric cancer. The reported current antibiotic regimen used in the treatment to eradicate H. pylori fails in 20% of the patients. A multivalent glycan inhibitor could offer a suitable alternative to antibiotics by acting as a competitive inhibitor for the cell receptors, leading to the binding and elimination ... more
