Topic: Helicobacter pylori


In the News (Sun 19 Nov 17)

  
  Information on Helicobacer pylori also referred to as H. pylori, produced by medical doctors
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a bacterium that causes chronic inflammation of the inner lining of the stomach (gastritis) in humans.
pylori also is associated with stomach cancer and a rare type of lymphocytic tumor of the stomach called MALT lymphoma.
The breath test relies on the ability of H. pylori to break down the naturally occurring chemical, urea, into carbon dioxide which is absorbed from the stomach and eliminated from the body in the breath.

Helicobacter pylori is a spiral-shaped Gram-negative bacterium that colonizes the stomach in about 50% of all humans.
As first reported by Robin Warren, the presence of Helicobacter pylori is always associated with an inflammation of the underlying gastric mucosa as evidenced by an infiltration of inflammatory cells.
Helicobacter pylori infection can be diagnosed by antibody tests, by identifying the organism in biopsies taken during endoscopy, or by the non-invasive breath test that identifies bacterial production of an enzyme in the stomach.

Helicobacter pylori is a micro-aerophilic, Gram-negative, slow-growing, spiral-shaped and flagellated organism.
pylori is probably the most common chronic bacterial infection of humans, present in almost half of the world population.
