The link between Helicobacter pylori infection and peptic ulceration is well established. Recent studies have reported a decrease of H. pylori-related peptic ulcer disease; Helicobacter pylori eradication is likely the cause of this decrease. We hypothesized that patients with H. pylori-positive perforated peptic ulcer disease (PPUD) requiring surgical intervention had worse outcomes than patients with H. pylori-negative PPUD.

Owing to wide-spread use, low-dose aspirin (LDA) produces a substantial amount of peptic ulcer disease. Current guidelines are ambivalent about the need for Helicobacter pylori eradication to protect ...
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) initiates a robust host immune response and subsequently results in chronic inflammation in the gastric mucosa. This study monitored the circulating monocyte subsets an...
Peptic ulcer disease (PUD) is a rare condition in children. Perforated peptic ulcer (PPU), a complication of PUD has an estimated mortality between 1.3% and 20%. We evaluate incidence and outcomes of ...
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is associated with an inflammatory response in the gastric mucosa, leading to chronic gastritis, peptic ulcers, and gastric cancer. Increased T-cell infiltra...
Peptic ulcer disease continues to be a source of significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. Approximately two-thirds of patients found to have peptic ulcer disease are asymptomatic. In symptomatic...
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection, affecting an estimated 50% of the global population, is a main cause of chronic gastritis, peptic ulcers and gastric cancer. By causing progressi...
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is a global health problem as it is associated with peptic ulcers, chronic gastritis, duodenitis, and stomach cancer. Therefore, the eradication ...
A prospective study of bleeding peptic ulcers and/or erosions in the upper gastrointestinal tract - risk-medication, presence of Helicobacter pylori, treatment and outcome.
Helicobacter pylori (HP) is the major risk factors of gastritis, gastric ulcers, duodenal ulcers, mucosa associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma and gastric cancer. Helicobacter pylori are fou...
The goal of the study is to compare the effectiveness of empirical Helicobacter pylori treatment compared with treatment depending on diagnostic tests for Helicobacter pylori in patients...
A spiral bacterium active as a human gastric pathogen. It is a gram-negative, urease-positive, curved or slightly spiral organism initially isolated in 1982 from patients with lesions of gastritis or peptic ulcers in Western Australia. Helicobacter pylori was originally classified in the genus CAMPYLOBACTER, but RNA sequencing, cellular fatty acid profiles, growth patterns, and other taxonomic characteristics indicate that the micro-organism should be included in the genus HELICOBACTER. It has been officially transferred to Helicobacter gen. nov. (see Int J Syst Bacteriol 1989 Oct;39(4):297-405).
Ulcer that occurs in the regions of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT which come into contact with GASTRIC JUICE containing PEPSIN and GASTRIC ACID. It occurs when there are defects in the MUCOSA barrier. The common forms of peptic ulcers are associated with HELICOBACTER PYLORI and the consumption of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
Infections with organisms of the genus HELICOBACTER, particularly, in humans, HELICOBACTER PYLORI. The clinical manifestations are focused in the stomach, usually the gastric mucosa and antrum, and the upper duodenum. This infection plays a major role in the pathogenesis of type B gastritis and peptic ulcer disease.
A species of gram-negative, spiral-shaped bacteria found in the gastric mucosa that is associated with chronic antral gastritis. This bacterium was first discovered in samples removed at endoscopy from patients investigated for HELICOBACTER PYLORI colonization.
A genus of gram-negative, spiral-shaped bacteria that has been isolated from the intestinal tract of mammals, including humans. It has been associated with PEPTIC ULCER.

Peptic Ulcer Disease
Peptic Ulcer Disease - stomach ulcer, duodenal ulcers used to refer to all types of peptic ulcers. A peptic ulcer is an erosion in a segment of the Gastrointestinal (GI) muscularis mucosae, typically in the stomach (gastric ulcer) or the first few cent...
