              This book provides a detailed review of the most recent pathogenetic, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in connection with Helicobacter pylori, along with priority areas in research and trends in clinical practice to address this significant pathogen acknowledged as the causa...tive agent in a wide range of diseases, including gastric carcinoma, MALT lymphoma and immune thrombocytopenic purpura. Medical authorities worldwide now recommend a test and treat strategy for this bacterial infection. Eradication therapy approaches range from general mass eradication therapy to tailor-made therapy for antibiotic-resistant refractory infection. In regions with high prevalence of H. pylori infection, the infection itself would be considered a major parameter to predict the risk of gastric adenocarcinoma development. The main interest has shifted recently to the risk stratification strategy for gastric cancer development and to the wide-ranging application of its serological prevention program. This book will benefit all gastroenterologists, hematologists, dermatologists, primary care doctors, epidemiologists, physicians who related with community hygiene, as well as basic scientists, particularly microbiologists, bacteriologists, pathologists, molecular biologists, biochemists, immunologists and oncologists.

              The significance of the gram-negative, microaerophilic, spiral bacterium Helicobacter pylori (Hp) in the formation of gastric and duodenal diseases now widely recognized, and it is no longer necessary to explain it. J Robin Warren and Barry Marshall were awarded the Nobel Prize i...n Physiology or Medicine in 2005 for establishing the importance of this bacterium, which is significantly involved in gastric and duodenal ulcers. Dr. Marshall even appeared in a TV commercial that is broadcast in Japan, discussing a Meiji Dairies yogurt containing one of the lactobacilli (i.e. LG20) targeting the reduction of Hp. The Hp-based eradication of chronic gastritis has begun to be covered by the national health insurance system through the efforts of the Helicobacter Society of Japan, and approx. 1 million people receive eradication treatment each year in Japan. Gastric cancer caused by Hp may eventually become a rare disease even in Japan and east Asian countries, where gastric cancer remains a common cause of death. However, in daily medical care, many physicians have encountered patients in whom chronic gastritis is revealed by gastroscopy, but Hp is not detected even after various tests. I have the impression that this type of case is gradually increasing now that Hp eradication has become commonplace. A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test revealed that these cases contained a significant proportion of non-Helicobacter pylori Helicobacter species (NHPH), which are the subject of this book. NHPH is included in the same genus as Hp, but has some characteristics that differ from those of Hp. Especially in terms of diagnosis, the diagnostic method that applies urease, which is widely used for Hp, often does not give a positive result for NHPH, thus overlooking these bacteria. In addition, NHPH are found not only in the mucous layer of the stomach but also in the gastric glands, especially in the intracellular canaliculus and cytoplasm of the acid-secreting parietal cells.
