0.001). After H. pylori eradication, even the cases with the lowest VPGL regressed to normal levels. CONCLUSIONS: Overall, a low VPGL correlates with increasing grades of antrum mucosal atrophy. The present data indicate that gastric mucosal atrophy is reversible, since almost all cases showed regression of VPGL after H. pylori eradication. The cases with difficult-to-classify grades of atrophy showed significantly lower VPGLs and higher VPIs than the reference cases.
