GlaxoWellcome: Background Info: H. pylori-fr Summary: Peptic ulcer disease H. pylori infection is found in 95 per cent of peptic ulcer patients and almost all patients with duodenal ulcer have H. pylori-related gastritis. Eradication of H. pylori in people with peptic ulcer is only rarely followed by a recurrence of the disease, providing very strong support for H. pylori being the cause.

The use of Helicobacter pylori eradication therapy in the treatment of duodenal ulceration is associated with a higher rate of healing, more rapid healing and a marked decrease in the rate of ulcer recurrence. As eradication therapy is currently indicated only in confirmed cases of duodenal ulceration with concurrent H. pylori infection the majority of such treatments will be initiated in.

The evidence of a causal relationship between H. pylori infection and duodenal ulcer, not induced by NSAIDs, is very strong. a) For the diagnosis of non-ulcer dyspepsia, symptoms of dyspepsia must have been present continuously or intermittently for three months.

The flagellated corkscrew-shaped bacterium, Helicobacter pylori, apparently survives in the forbidding acid environment of the stomach and duodenum by hiding in the mucus and neutralizing stomach acid in its local environment.

Summary: The organism lives in the stomachs of most people in the world, although in countries like Australia, US, UK and Sweden less than 50% are infected and most children are Helicobacter free. Gastric cancer is common in some countries like South America, China, Japan and uncommon in others like Australia, US, UK, etc.

Summary: Limited studies have suggested that a bacterium commonly associated with peptic ulcers and other gastric disorders, called Helicobacter pylori, may play a role in triggering rosacea in some patients.

Rosacea (rose-A-she-ah) is a common skin problem that is characterized by flushing of the face. Its occurrence increases with age and is most often observed with older individuals (Litt, 1997). Rosacea often occurs on cheeks, chin, forehead and nose. In more severe or untreated cases it can lead to increased reddening and swelling.

Chronic urticaria (skin rash) that is not drug-related and cannot be identified as an allergic reaction remains a puzzle, and therefore dermatologists are eager to investigate any likely causes. Of 25 German patients with chronic urticaria, 17 were found to harbor H. pylori. Treatment with drugs eradicated the bacteria in 14 people, and all exhibited either remission (>75% improvement) or partial remission (50–75% improvement) of urticaria.

Although EPD is officially supervised under an IRB/FDA investigation in the United States, we have felt it was best to keep a low profile, as the FDA would frown on any material which might be construed to be "advertising."
