A recent study shows that the presence of H. pylori bacteria is associated with elevated levels of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), an important biomarker for blood glucose levels and diabetes. This association was stronger in obese individuals with a higher Body Mass Index (BMI). The results, which suggest the bacteria may play a role in the development of diabetes in adults, are published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases and are now available online. H. pylori infection of the...

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Engineering Researchers Discover Impact of Viscoelasticity on the Collective Behavior of Swimming Microorganisms Even the tiniest microscopic organisms make waves when they swim. In fact, dealing with these waves is a fact of life for the ulcer-causing bacteria H. pylori. The bacteria are known to change their behavior in order to compensate for the waves created by other bacteria swimming around in the same aquatic neighborhood. From the relatively...

Researchers are slowly creating a blueprint for the molecular machine that keeps the pathogen alive and well in the acidic stew of the guts of half the world's population A research team led by scientists at the Chinese University of Hong Kong is releasing study results this week showing how a bacterium, Helicobacter pylori, that causes more than half of peptic ulcers worldwide and that has been implicated in stomach cancer has managed for eons to turn the acidic environment of the human...

Researchers report they have figured out how the cancer-causing bacterium Helicobacter pylori attacks a cell's energy infrastructure, sparking a series of events in the cell that ultimately lead it to self-destruct. H. pylori are the only bacteria known to survive in the human stomach. Infection with H. pylori is associated with an increased risk of gastric cancer, the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. "More than half the world's population is currently infected...

Strawberries Can Protect The Stomach From Alcohol

In an experiment on rats, European researchers have proved that eating strawberries reduces the harm that alcohol can cause to the stomach mucous membrane. Published in the open access journal Plos One, the study may contribute to improving the treatment of stomach ulcers. A team of Italian, Serbian and Spanish researchers has confirmed the protecting effect that strawberries have in a mammal stomach that has been damaged by alcohol. Scientists gave ethanol (ethyl alcohol) to laboratory...

In the October 20th edition of the journal Cell Host and Microbe, Drs. Claudia Plottel and Martin J. Blaser of the Departments of Medicine and Microbiology at NYU Langone Medical Center, and the Department of Biology at New York University, present a model for understanding how cancer evolves in humans based on an understanding of the bacteria living in our body, the microbiome. The authors suggest that the bacteria that reside in us play a crucial role in maintaining our health. This...

TUCSON, Ariz., Oct. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The VENTANA anti-Helicobacter pylori (SP48) Rabbit Monoclonal Primary Antibody (H. pylori) is the first H. pylori antibody to receive 510(k) clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Developed by Ventana Medical Systems, Inc. (Ventana), a member of the Roche Group, the VENTANA H. pylori antibody, when used in immunohistochemical (IHC) staining, aids in the detection of Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium linked to chronic gastritis,...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- In the largest study of its kind, researchers say different populations of people need different therapies to get rid of H. pylori, which is the primary cause of gastric cancer. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, stomach cancer was the fourth most common cancer and the second-leading cause of cancer death in the world in 2008. About 72 percent of new cases occur in developing countries. The current study, which was conducted at seven sites...

Largest study of its kind suggests different populations need different therapies to eradicate H. pylori, primary cause of gastric cancer Helicobacter pylori, the bacterium known to cause peptic ulcers, is also the primary cause of gastric cancer, which is a leading cancer killer globally. A large clinical trial at seven sites across Latin America has now found that a standard three-drug regimen for treating H. pylori is more effective, at least in the population studied, than either of two...

Infection with the gastric bacterium Helicobacter pylori provides reliable protection against allergy-induced asthma, immunologists from the University of Zurich have demonstrated in an animal model together with allergy specialists from the University Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. Their results published in the prestigious Journal of Clinical Investigation confirm the hypothesis recently put forward that the dramatic increase in allergic diseases in industrial...

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...
