What are Potential Problems Associated with Helicobacter pylori?
Discussion Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a microaerophilis, spiral bacterium that is a prevalent human pathogen. How this infection affects individuals is different in adults and children.

It is acquired in childhood and can persist through colonization throughout life if untreated. Fortunately, it often is asymptomatic and generally does not cause serious disease in children. Some serotyping data shows that within families children acquire it more...
