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.

Helicobacter pylori is a universally distributed bacterium which affects more than half of the world population. The infection is associated with the development of various diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract, besides extradigestive diseases. This book is a comprehensive overview of contributors on H. pylori infection in several areas. Its chapters were divided into sections concerning general aspects of H. pylori infection, immunopathology and genetic diversity, questions regarding possible routes of bacterium transmission, the importance of the strains characteristics in the development of gastric cancer and the possibilities of prevention, H. pylori infection in children, the possible association between its infection and extradigestive diseases, and the principal therapeutic regimens of bacterium eradication, considering the antimicrobial resistance.
