Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a spiral bacterium that can be found on the stomach lining and is associated with various pathological conditions. The infection begins with the entry of bacteria into the digestive system, and if left untreated, the infection lasts for life in most patients. The mode of transmission of the H. pylori bacterium has not yet been fully investigated. Current research indicates that the infection is transmitted directly from an infected person to a healthy one, but transmission through infected food or water and animals is not excluded. It is known that H. pylori infection plays a significant role in the development of chronic gastritis, gastric (50-60%) and duodenal ulcers (85-90%), but it also plays a key role in the pathogenesis of gastric cancer and low-grade MALT lymphomas.
