Gastric cancer is the fourth most common type of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the world. In China, more than 390,000 new patients are diagnosed with gastric cancer and more than 300,000 patients are killed by the terrible disease annually. Although gastric cancer has a multifactorial etiology, infection with H. pylori is highly associated with gastric carcinogenesis. Therefore, eradication of H. pylori infection appears to reduce the risk of gastric cancer. However, several recent controlled interventional trials by H. pylori eradication to prevent gastric cancer have yielded disappointing results. The exact effect of H.pylori eradication on prevention of gastric cancer is unclear up to now. To clarify this problem, the investigators conducted a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, population-based study to determine whether H pylori eradication would reduce the incidence of gastric cancer in a high-risk population in China.

The triple treatment including Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) -clarithromycin and amoxicillin or metronidazole was proposed 30 years ago at the first Maastricht conference to treat helicobact...
To assess if a sequential treatment regimen better eradicates H. pylori than does a triple drug regimen in adults with dyspepsia or peptic ulcer disease.
Helicobacter pylori is a bacterium estimated to colonize in the gastrointestinal tract of the half population in the world. Colonization of this bacteria is suspected to be one of the main...
The purpose of this study is to improve first line Helicobacter pylori eradication rate and to compare the sequential versus conventional triple therapy.
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infects more than 50% of the population in the world(1), especially 47-66% in China.
To assess the effectiveness of clarithromycin based standard triple therapy verses levofloxacin based first line therapy against Helicobacter pylori infection.
The aim of the present study was to compare between the efficacy and tolerability of a sequential therapy (ST) as the first-line treatment for adults with Helicobacter pylori infection and that of sta...
Helicobacter pylori resistance to more than one antibiotic is the main reason for failure in bacterial eradication in a considerable number of patients. Rifabutin (RFB) with a broad-spectrum of antimi...
Therapy-related side effects and severe antimicrobial resistance still remain an obstacle to Helicobacter pylori eradication. This meta-analysis aimed to investigate the efficacy of Lactobacillus-supp...
The oral cavity is recognized as a major route for infection by Helicobacter pylori, which colonizes the gastric mucosa. Therapeutic options for elimination in patients with digestive disease have bee...
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 HELICOBACTER commonly associated with STOMACH DISEASES in FERRETS.
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).
A species of HELICOBACTER that colonizes the CECUM and COLON of several strains of MICE, and is associated with HEPATITIS and carcinogenesis.
A species of HELICOBACTER that colonizes in the STOMACH of laboratory MICE; CATS; and DOGS. It is associated with lymphoid follicular hyperplasia and mild GASTRITIS in CATS.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...

Head and neck cancers
Cancer can occur in any of the tissues or organs in the head and neck. There are over 30 different places that cancer can develop in the head and neck area. Mouth cancers (oral cancers) - Mouth cancer can develop on the lip, the tongue, the floor...
