HELICOBACTER PYLORI INFECTION
Helicobacter pylori is a spiral-shaped gram-negative bacterium involved in the development of gastritis, duodenal and gastric ulcers, and gastric cancer.
Infection is strongly associated with the development of gastric epithelial and lymphoid malignancies.
Acute infection is mostly asymptomatic and is acquired through human-to-human contact via gastro-oral and fecal-oral routes.
Adaptability in gastric conditions and production of urease allow it to colonize the stomach.

Diagnosis of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) remains unclear in patients with subacute/chronic cough, especially those with low blood eosinophil counts ≤150/μl, but using the Frequency Scale for the Symptoms of GERD (FSSG) questionnaire may considerably help, suggests a study presented at the recent American Thoracic Society (ATS) 2019 International Conference held at Dallas, Texas in the US.
