Editor: György Miklós Buzás
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.
