About the book
In recent years, epidemiological studies, paired with genomic analyses have shed light on specific interactions of Helicobacter pylori and the increased risk of development of digestive and extradigestive outcomes. Genomic tools such as genome sequencing, restriction fragment length polymorphism genome mapping and analytical methods are enhancing the molecular epidemiological methods currently used to study H. pylori pathogenesis. Besides, new drugs and different combinations of them have been suggested to eradicate the microorganism and scientists around the world have discussed the management of the infection, considering the host characteristics.
This book is an invitation for having a different look at Helicobacter pylori infection, since its first isolation by Warren and Marshall in the 80´s until nowadays.
