Dr. Bruna Maria Roesler is a pharmacist biochemist and holds a master´s degree in Pharmacology and a doctoral degree in Basic Sciences–Internal Medicine from the State University of Campinas (Campinas, SP, Brazil) where she has identified the principal genotypes of Helicobacter pylori strains in patients with chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, and gastric cancer (early and advanced stages) through molecular biology techniques. She has published her work in several peer-reviewed journals and given oral and poster presentations at various congresses. Her research also includes the etiology, epidemiology, and physiopathology of gastrointestinal diseases. She has also participated in some studies that reported the possible relationship between H. pylori and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, as well as between H. pylori and liver diseases.

Helicobacter pylori is a universally distributed bacterium that affects more than half of the world population. H. pylori infection causes persistent inflammation with different clinical outcomes in humans, including chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, and gastric cancer. The infection has also been associated with several extradigestive disorders. In this book, there is a comprehensive overview of contributors on H. pylori infection in diverse areas, including virulence factors of H. pylori and their importance for the clinical outcome of the diseases, discussions about the principal therapeutic regimens of bacterium eradication, also considering the antimicrobial resistance. H. pylori is clearly a very interesting bacterium and studies and discussions about its aspects are welcome to the medical and scientific communities.
