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...

(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...

A potential vaccine against bacteria that cause serious gastric disorders including stomach cancer may be a step closer following a pioneering study by a University of Guelph chemist. In the first published study of its kind, a team led by Prof. Mario Monteiro, Department of Chemistry, found a carbohydrate-based antigen caused mice to develop antibodies against a common bacterium linked to gastric cancer. "This is the first jab at a sugar-based vaccine against Helicobacter pylori," said...

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...
