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.

About the editor

Bruna Maria Roesler

State University of Campinas

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 studies that reported the possible relationship between H. pylori and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, as well as between H. pylori and liver diseases.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
