H. Pylori Infection

 

 

What is H. Pylori?

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection occurs when H. pylori bacteria infect your stomach. This usually happens during childhood. A common cause of peptic ulcers, H. pylori infection may be present in more than half the people in the world.

Most people don’t realize they have H. pylori infection, because they never get sick from it. If you develop signs and symptoms of a peptic ulcer, your doctor will probably test you for H. pylori infection. If you have H. pylori infection, it can be treated with antibiotics.

Researchers want to see if this investigational drug can eradicate this common infection. Though some people may not have any symptoms, if infected, you may experience a burning pain in your belly. Study doctors will do tests to see if you have this infection.

Participants must have:

  • Dyspepsia (pain in your upper abdomen) OR
  • History of or active peptic ulcers OR
  • Long-term NSAID user (ibuprophen, naproxen, etc.)
