Strain Of Probiotic May Help Treat Ulcers Caused By Helicobacter Pylori

A strain of probiotic bacteria that may help treat ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori has been identified by Spanish scientists, according to an article published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology.

Helicobacter pylori, often referred to a H. pylori causes ulcers in the stomach and gastritis (stomach inflammation). The majority of gastric and duodenal ulcers globally are caused by this bacterium.

The authors wrote:

"Currently, antibiotic-based treatment for H. pylori infection is neither sufficient nor satisfactory, with the most successful treatments reaching 75 to 90% eradication rates. The use of probiotics is a potentially promising tool to prevent H. pylori."

The FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) and WHO (World Health Organization), probiotics are live organisms which when consumed in sufficient quantities benefit the host.

The authors add that regular consumption of probiotics has been compellingly shown to significantly reduce the risk of inflammatory bowel disease, diarrhea and many other disorders.

Bifidobacterium, a type of probiotic, is frequently used in fermented dairy products as well as food supplements. It is one of the favorite genera in studies that look at the prevention of gastrointestinal infections.
