Helicobacter pylori: Biology and Clinical Practice is the first book to fully describe H. pylori and the pathogenesis of H. pylori infections. It delineates the genome of H. pylori, discusses the molecular biology of the unique urease enzyme, and examines the clinical application of these discoveries. The book describes the epidemiology of H. pylori and its relevance to gastric cancer, and it offers clear guidance to clinicians for the diagnosis and treatment of peptic ulcer and non-ulcer dyspepsia in adults and children. Vaccine principles and possibilities are presented for the first time.
Edited by the leader of the microbiology team that achieved the first culture of H. pylori, and named the Helicobacter genus, this book is essential for bacteriologists, gastroenterologists, microbiologists, infectious disease specialists, and other researchers interested in H. pylori.
