Muhammad Imran Qadir,
Helicobacter pylori infection which is a constantly occurring disease causes
damage to normal regulation and function of gastric acid. It was estimated that peptic
ulcer infection was developed in about only 15% of persons that were infected with
Helicobacter pylori. Burning, epigastric pain, and nocturnal pain after food intake are
typical symptoms. Urea breath test, stool antigen test, or an endoscopic biopsy and
ELISA may be performed as a diagnostic test for confirmation of occurrence of
Helicobacter pylori infection in peptic ulcer patients. Management for peptic ulcer
infection includes drug treatment and surgery.
