dc.description.abstractFirst paragraph: The most surprising thing about Helicobacter pylori is its site of residence-within the stomach. Failure of early reports of the presence of spiral gastric organisms to evoke much interest was probably due to a general reluctance to view the stomach as a habitat for micro-organisms because of the extreme acidity of its lumen. Marshall and Warren's `discovery' in 1982 changed that, and now, within 18 years of the cultivation of a microaerophilic flagellated spiral organism from the human stomach, H. pylori is not only regarded as the commonest chronic bacterial infection of mankind, but also the principal cause of duodenal ulcer disease and an important factor in the pathogenesis of gastric cancer.en_UK
