Helicobacter pylori


SEM: Medicine: Bacteria: Helicobacter pylori: This pathogenic agent of chronically active gastritis and intestinal ulcers was discovered in 1983 by an Australian. The bacteria are wound in a spiral shape and possess up to 7 flagella. H. pylori populates the mucosa of the human stomach exclusively. It is diagnosed by a stomach biopsy or a Urea Breath Test. Treatment of the infection involves the administration of anti-microbial substances combined with bismuth salt over a course of 14 days. The transmission of the infection seems to take place by mouth - mouth contact. Magnification = 9.000x.
