the cork-screwed shaped bacteria found responsible for most cases of human gastritis, ulceration and potential cause of stomach cancer.
Bacteria which can infect the stomach. Stomach infection with HP has been shown to be a cause of a rare type of lymphoma of the stomach. Possibly increases the risk of the commonest type of stomach cancer, (adenocarcinoma of the stomach), but this has not been conclusively proved. See Adenocarcinoma, Lymphoma.
Bacterium causing gastritis and peptic ulcer disease in humans.
bacteria that live in the cell lining of the stomach.
A bacterial infection of the gut associated with peptic ulcers.
Helicobacter pylori is a bacterium (single-celled organism) that lives deep in the mucous layer lining of the stomach of some people. Infection with H. pylori leads to inflammation of the lining of the stomach (gastritis) and in some infected people, upper intestinal (duodenal) or stomach (gastric) ulcers. The infection may also play a role in the development of stomach tumours. It is more common in older people and is much less frequent in those born more recently. It persists unless it is treated with medications.
H. pylori): pronounced HELI-co-back-ter pie-LORRIE — abbreviated H. pylori, a bacterium found in the stomach that can cause ulcers.
A type of bacteria which can be found in the stomach wall and causes an infection. The presence of H. Pylori may cause duodenal or peptic ulcers, if left untreated, and intestinal metaplasia as a response to the infection.
(HEE-lih-ko-BAK-ter py-LORE-ee) ( listen) Organism found in the stomach and small intestine of many people with peptic ulcers. These types of ulcers usually heal when treatment is given to kill the H. pylori bacteria.
(H. pylori) A spiral-shaped bacterium found in the stomach. H. pylori damages stomach and duodenal tissue, causing ulcers.
(HEEL-i-ko-BAK-ter pie-LOR-ee): Bacteria that cause inflammation and ulcers in the stomach.
H. pylori. Bacteria that cause inflammation and ulcers in the stomach and small intestine. People with H. Pylori infections may be more likely to develop stomach cancer or MALT (mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue) lymphoma.
a bacteria that infects the stomach and can cause ulcers
spiral-shaped bacterium found in the stomach known to be the primary cause of stomach ulcers
A bacteria often associated with certain gastro-intestinal cancers. Also abbreviated for H.pylori.
A bacterium believed to be a major cause of peptic ulcers.
A type of bacteria that can cause stomach ulcers; infection with this organism also plays a role in stomach cancer.
A virulent bacteria that causes gas, bloating, burping and poor digestion because it interferes with the production of digestive enzymes leading to fatigue, poor absorption of nutrients, pain, and general malaise. If left unchecked, it will cause ulceration of the lining of the digestive system and can become cancer causing.
A bacterium recognized as causing peptic ulcers, and once known as Campylobacter pylori.
Bacterium responsible for chronic inflammation of the lining of the stomach (chronic gastritis).
A corkscrew-shaped bacterium found in the stomach that can predispose to stomach and duodenal ulcers. Previously called Campylobacter pylori.
Spiral-shaped bacterium found in the stomach. H. pylori damages stomach and duodenal tissue, causing ulcers; previously called Campylobacter pylori.
Bacteria found in the stomach that can damage the lining of the stomach and upper small intestine, leading to ulcer formation.
Bacteria that cause stomach inflammation (gastritis) and ulcers in the stomach. This bacteria is the most common cause of ulcers worldwide. It is often referred to as H. pylori. See the entire definition of Helicobacter pylori
(HEEL-ih-ko-BAK-ter pye-LOR-ee): Bacteria that cause inflammation and ulcers in the stomach.
A bacterium that can damage stomach and duodenal tissue, causing ulcers.
A stomach bacteria which causes ulcers that was once thought to be the cause of rosacea. Later studies did not prove this connection.
(HEEL-ih-koh-BAK-ter py-LOR-ee) H. pylori. A type of bacteria that causes inflammation and ulcers in the stomach or small intestine. People with H. pylori infections may be more likely to develop cancer in the stomach, including MALT (mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue) lymphoma.
A bacterium found in the digestive tract of most people, today generally acknowledged as the main cause of peptic ulcers.
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a bacterium which lives only in the lining of the stomach and is one of the most common chronic infections in humans. Doctors feel that H. pylori is associated with most stomach ulcers and almost all duodenal ulcers.
A microscopic bacterium that can infect the lining of the stomach and duodenum and cause an ulcer.
bacterium with a spiral tail which lives under the gastric mucosa layer; the presence of Hp is correlated with gastritis, as well as gastric and duodenal ulcers.
The name of the bacterium that causes disease (gastritis and ulcers) in humans.
A type of spiral shaped bacterium (germ) found in the stomach and the duodenum in a high proportion of people with peptic ulcer (duodenal ulcer, gastric ulcer).
H. pylori is a bacterium that is found in the stomach which, along with acid secretion, damages stomach and duodenal tissue, causing inflammation and peptic ulcers. Although most people will never have symptoms or problems related to the infection, they may include: dull, 'gnawing' pain which may occur 2-3 hours after a meal, come and go for several days or weeks, occur in the middle of the night when the stomach is empty and be relieved by eating; loss of weight; loss of appetite; bloating; burping; nausea; vomiting.
a bacterium which can infect the stomach. It has been recently identified as one of the possible causes of stomach cancer. It is the known cause of peptic ulcers.
Helicobacter pylori is a bacterium that infects the mucus lining of the stomach and duodenum. Many cases of peptic ulcers, gastritis, and duodenitis are caused by H. pylori infection. However, many who are infected do not show any symptoms of disease.
