Welcome to The Helicobacter Foundation
The "Helicobacter Foundation" was founded by Prof. Barry J. Marshall in early 1994, and is dedicated to providing you with the latest information about Helicobacter pylori, its diagnosis, treatment and clinical perspectives.
The story of why it took 100 years to discover Helicobacter is described in these pages.
You should discuss various treatment options, their risks and benefits, with your own doctor. Be aware that treatment of H. pylori is not always recommended by all experts on H. pylori, or in all patients with H. pylori.
Each patient is an individual and decisions must be made in concert with his or her own medical practitioner on a case-by-case basis. The Helicobacter Foundation makes a good faith attempt to ensure that information provided is accurate and up-to date. Most of the information has been published or presented at national and international scientific meetings.
The Helicobacter Foundation makes no guarantees about the accuracy of this information which is given free of charge to whomever requests it. Please help support this website by donating via the button below.
