What is an H.Pylori infection?

H. Pylori are spiral-shaped bacteria that grow in the digestive tract and have a tendency to attack the stomach lining. H.Pylori infections are usually harmless, but they are responsible for the majority of ulcers in the stomach and small intestine.

H.Pylori is a common type of bacteria that usually infects the stomach. They may be present in more than half of all people in the world today according to the “Mayo Clinic”. The “H” in the name is short for Helicobacter. “Helico” means spiral considering the bacteria are spiral shaped.

H.Pylori normally infects your stomach during childhood. While infections with this strain typically don’t cause symptoms, they can lead to diseases in some people, including peptic ulcers and an inflammatory condition inside your stomach known as gastritis.

H.Pylori are adapted to live in the harsh, acidic environment of the stomach. These bacteria  can change the environment around them and reduce its acidity, so they can survive.  The shape of H.Pylori allows them to penetrate the stomach lining, where they are protected by mucus and the body’s immune cells are not able to reach and destroy them. The bacteria  can further interfere with your immune response and thus  ensure that they are not destroyed.

This can lead to further stomach problems.
