  • EPIDEMIOLOGY: Worldwide - H. pylori is has one of the highest global prevalence for a human pathogen with more than 50% of the world's population infected, especially in developing countries where those chronically infected can reach up to 90% by adulthood (10). (msdsonline.com)
  • Chronic
  • However, H. pylori possibly plays a role only in the first stage that leads to common chronic inflammation, but not in further stages leading to carcinogenesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • diseases
  • This book will be a great asset in clinical practice for all practitioners who are involved in caring for patients with H. pylori -related diseases or have an interest in the subject. (springer.com)
  • Urea
  • The urea breath test is a good noninvasive measure, but since you've had the endoscopy (provided you had biopsies tested for h. pylori) and it was normal, you can feel pretty confident that you don't have h. pylori. (healingwell.com)
  • eradicate
  • Exposing H. pylori to 1.1mg/L residual chlorine for 45 minutes is enough to eradicate the pathogen (biocidal properties of chlorine are optimized at lower pH levels, such as around pH 7 or 6). (msdsonline.com)
  • Escherichia
  • Comparisons with sequences from Escherichia coli , Neisseria meningitidis , and Drosophila melanogaster showed that recombination in H. pylori was much more frequent than in other species. (pnas.org)
  • clinical outcomes
  • Short-term clinical outcomes for 100 consecutive cases of laparoscopic pylorus-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy: improvement with surgical experience. (springer.com)
  • species
  • Helicobacter pylori is genetically one of the most diverse bacterial species so far reported. (pnas.org)
  • H. pylori is of primary importance for medicine, but non-H. pylori species, which naturally inhabit mammals (except humans) and birds, have been detected in human clinical specimens. (wikipedia.org)
  • viable
  • VECTORS: Houseflies can carry viable H. pylori on their bodies, in their intestinal tracts, and in excreta (16). (msdsonline.com)
