TO THE EDITOR:
We read with interest the article by Roggero and coworkers  showing that eradication of Helicobacter pylori can induce regression of localized low-grade gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. Their finding of histologic remission in 60% of the patients confirm the results Wotherspoon and colleagues found in a small series . Roggero and colleagues also found that regression was a progressive process in 8 of their 15 patients. Clinical and histologic regression of low-grade MALT lymphoma is the first goal of therapy. However, more accurate molecular studies are needed to show cure with eradication of latent residual disease.
