Preface


This e-book covers Helicobacter pylori research as it looks in 2014. The discovery of the bacterium in 1982 by B.J. Marshall and R. I. Warren had a tremendous impact on basic research and clinical medicine, resulting, in the past 3 decades, in more than 34,000 published articles. The editor of this volume and the contributing authors have compiled a unique collection of chapters dealing the with the microbiology, epidemiology, clinical diagnosis and treatment of H. pylori infections in a country-specific manner, with contributors having the opportunity to present the peculiarities and specifics of Helicobacter research in their area or country without overlapping any other previously published e-book. This e-book is a useful reference for gastrointestinal physicians and medical researchers seeking the latest information related to H. pylori.
