hmm....

urease +ve, gram negative rod, associated with Peptic ulcer disease in the antral region mainly..

Presence can be checked by stool antigen, antibody essay & Urea breath test.... i don't know which is the superior though... treated with triple therapy

i think thats all... that comes to my mind regarding H. Pylori rite now...
