U.S. medical researchers say they've discovered popular glutamine supplements show promise in the treatment of stomach ulcers. Since it's been known Helicobacter pylori bacteria are responsible for stomach ulcers, antibiotics have become the primary therapy for such conditions. But scientists say bacteria are growing increasingly resistant to antibiotics. In the new study led by scientists at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology,...

Amino acid helps offset stomach damage caused by H. pylori bacteria; animal study suggests popular supplement could also reduce risk of gastric cancersNearly 20 years ago, it was discovered that bacteria known as Helicobacter pylori were responsible for stomach ulcers. Since then, antibiotics have become the primary therapy used to combat the H. pylori infection, which affects approximately six percent of the world population and is also a primary cause of stomach cancer. But today the...

Broccoli sprouts effectively control Helicobacter pylori bacteria, known to be a leading cause of stomach ulcers and stomach cancer, researchers found. Researchers studied 50 people in Japan and found that eating 2.5 ounces of broccoli sprouts each day for two months could suppress the bacteria. Broccoli contains a phytochemical called sulforaphane, which has an antibiotic affect that has been known for almost two decades, researchers said in the report in Cancer Prevention Research, a...

Results of the first human clinical studies confirm that a new yogurt fights the bacteria that cause gastritis and stomach ulcers with what researchers describe as almost vaccine-like effects, scientists in Japan will report here today at the 237th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society. Researchers have long known that yogurt, a fermented milk product containing live bacteria, is a healthy source of calcium, protein, and other nutrients. Some brands of yogurt are now made with...

Resent studies reported that aspirin inhibited the growth of H. pylori in a dose-dependent manner and significantly affected the activity of virulence factors of H. pylori. In addition, aspirin increased the susceptibility of H. pylori to antimicrobials including metronidazole, clarithromycin and amoxicillin. However, the mechanisms remained unknown. A research team led by Prof. Wang from Peking University First Hospital of China addressed this issue and their results will be published on...

Helicobacter pylori, a Gram-negative, flagellated, microaerophilic bacterium, can selectively colonize in the human stomach. Its infection is widespread throughout the world, and is present in about 50% of the global human population with 80% in developing countries and 20-50% in industrialized countries. Infection of the stomach with H. pylori induces a local immune response with infiltration of the mucosa by macrophages, neutrophils and lymphocytes. Although the innate and adaptive immune...

If you want to know how prehistoric people migrated, follow the "bugs" they carried with them. A consortium of scientists that included two from Baylor College of Medicine and the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Houston did just that and in a report in the current issue of the journal Science, they described the two prehistoric migrations that populated the nations of the Pacific Ocean by looking at the travels of two different strains of a particularly nasty bacteria...

Bismuth compounds have been used for centuries in medicine. The discovery of H. pylori in 1983 led to renewed interest in bismuth compounds, because these were found to successfully treat the infection in combination with antibiotics. However, in the 1970s bismuth salts, used at high doses for prolonged periods, were found to lead to neurotoxicity. There has been no summary of evidence for the toxicity of bismuth when used for short periods as part of H. pylori eradication therapy. A research...

Bacteria that cause stomach ulcers and cancer could also be giving us bad breath, according to research published in the December issue of the Journal of Medical Microbiology. For the first time, scientists have found Helicobacter pylori living in the mouths of people who are not showing signs of stomach disease.The mouth is home to over 600 different species of bacteria, some of which can cause disease. Helicobacter pylori has recently been shown to cause stomach ulcers and is also...

Helicobacter pylori is a Gram-negative, microaerophilic bacterium that can inhabit various areas of the stomach, particularly the antrum. It causes low-level inflammation of the stomach lining and is linked to gastric ulcers and stomach cancer. Out of those infected, 80%, are asymptomatic. It was initially named Campyloacter pyloridis and then renamed C. pylori to correct the Latin grammar error. It was later placed in the genus, Helicobacter. Over 50% of the population has H. pylori in...
