Good Evening, thanking you for your rapid response and instruction.Very much appreciated
I was writing to gain permission and some information relating to helicobacter pylori?
To date from what I have researched online, the main connection to helicobacter pylori is that it causes stomach cancer/ duodenal ulcers
chronic gastritis to name some of the diseases that are the by product of the bacteria etc;
I then happened upon an article online at the ABC news in science where a reporter interviewed you ( which pre empted this email)
and you spoke of Helicobacter pylori as having a stand in human migration, how various cultures have different strains of the bacterium
I was fascinated at your discovery in relation to the Bacteria.
you were quoted as saying:
"H. pylori has a further advantage in that it contains thousands of genes,
compared to just 37 genes in mDNA, and differs between populations."
"It was found over [the] last few years that each human racial group carried
a Helicobacter that was relatively unique in that group,"
(article quoted from can be found at http://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/ ... 472251.htm
and I feel this is an important component as I would like to present a full perspective to my fellow nursing students in my presentation.
although as I am learning more about the bacteria, it was your above statement that had me emailing you in relation to my queries in relation to the presentation.
I have visited the helicobacter pylori website along with many others, as a first year nursing student, I've a lot more to learn.
I thankyou for taking the time to read ths email and look forward to any response u may be able to offer me
thanking you sincerely
