Book Description
Helicobacter pylori: Biology and Clinical Practice is the first book to fully describe H. pylori and the pathogenesis of H. pylori infections. It delineates the genome of H. pylori, discusses the molecular biology of the unique urease enzyme, and examines the clinical application of these discoveries. The book describes the epidemiology of H. pylori and its relevance to gastric cancer, and it offers clear guidance to clinicians for the diagnosis and treatment of peptic ulcer and non-ulcer dyspepsia in adults and children. Vaccine principles and possibilities are presented for the first time. Edited by the leader of the microbiology team that achieved the first culture of H. pylori, and named the Helicobacter genus, this book is essential for bacteriologists, gastroenterologists, microbiologists, infectious disease...


Helicobacter Pylori Infection and Immunity

Book Description
Today there is overwhelming evidence that Helicobacter pylori is the major cause of chronic active gastritis and that it may further predispose to peptic ulcers, of which there are several thousand cases in the US each year. The most severe clinical outcomes of H. pylori infection are mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma and gastric cancer. Because of these findings, the implications for cancer etiology are intriguing. This book, a volume in the Infectious Agents and Pathogenesis series, presents chapters by major researchers in the field, including Dr. Barry Marshall whose research was responsible for establishing the linking of gastric ulcers with the H. pylori bacterium.


Helicobacter Pylori Infection in Childhood

Download Description
Helicobacter pylori is responsible for one of the most frequently encountered infectious diseases world-wide. Infection with this organism can lead to the development of gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. The presence of Helicobacter pylori in the human stomach also represents an increased risk for gastric cancer and gastric lymphoma. Epidemiological data obtained in adults suggest that the actual colonization with Helicobacter pylori is in fact determined by childhood factors. Therefore, the pediatric age group represents the ideal target population for studies concerning the pathogenesis and epidemiology of Helicobacter pylori infection. The present work reflects our experience with regard to the diagnosis, epidemiology and pathogenesis of Helicobacter pylori infection in childhood and adds information to the...

From the Publisher
Recent interest in Helicobacter pylori dates from 1983 when Warren and Marshall "rediscovered" this spiral organism by reporting the first successful technique to cultivate this microorganism. Helicobacter pylori is clearly related to the presence of active chronic gastritis and peptic ulcer, both in adults and children. Very recently it has also been suggested that Helicobacter pylori might play an important role as a co-factor in the evolution towards gastric cancer. This is of special importance in view of the fact that asymptomatic carriers of Helicobacter pylori colonization can harvest this infection for a long period of time without experiencing any discomfort at all. The possibility exists that these individuals might be at a greater risk for developing gastric cancer at a later stage in their life....
