Introduction

This e-book covers Helicobacter pylori research as it looks in 2014. The discovery of the bacterium in 1982 by B.J. Marshall and R. I. Warren had a tremendous impact on basic research and clinical medicine, resulting, in the past 3 decades, in more than 34,000 published articles. The editor of this volume and the contributing authors have compiled a unique collection of chapters dealing the with the microbiology, epidemiology, clinical diagnosis and treatment of H. pylori infections in a country-specific manner, with contributors having the opportunity to present the peculiarities and specifics of Helicobacter research in their area or country without overlapping any other previously published e-book. This e-book is a useful reference for gastrointestinal physicians and medical researchers seeking the latest information related to H. pylori.

Foreword

I am honoured to be able to contribute to this new and exciting eBook about Helicobacter in the 21st century, coming as it does from Budapest, an area central too much of the thinking about gastrointestinal and infectious diseases over the past 150 years. The eBook has excellent credentials for describing new knowledge in these areas.

The editor, BUZÁS GYÖRGY MIKLÓS, has attracted well known and active global researchers to update us on basic sciences, clinico-pathological correlations, newest treatments and diagnostic methods. All these facts are cleverly wrapped in a comprehensive, country-specific description of the epidemiology of the ubiquitous and fascinating bug, Helicobacter.

In summary, I am delighted to see such an authoritative, expertly produced and well referenced eBook which will be a milestone in Helicobacter science. By starting here, newcomers will immediately achieve an understanding of the field, thereby being well grounded towards making their own discoveries.
