Marshall in early 1994, and is dedicated to providing you with the latest information about Helicobacter pylori, its diagnosis, treatment and clinical perspectives.You should discuss various treatment options, their risks and benefits, with your own doctor. Be aware that treatment of H. pylori is not always recommended by all experts on H. pylori, or in all patients with H. pylori.Each patient is an individual and decisions must be made in concert with his or her own medical practitioner on a case-by-case basis.
