Helicobacter pylori- Drug Testing

Testing susceptibilities of Helicobacter pylori against antibiotics and herbal products

Helicobacter pylori infection in human stomach may lead to peptic ulcer and gastric cancer. These two diseases are responsible for over 1 million deaths every year worldwide. For H. pylori, growing resistances against commonly used antibiotics like metronidazole, clarithromycin and amoxicillin is a concern. Alternative therapies involving plant extracts or other substances may have anti-H. pylori activities. However, the stringent conditions required for H. pylori culture makes the H. pylori related in vitro tests difficult for most laboratories. RGCB offers a unique service of testing the sensitivity profiles of H. pylori against antibiotics and other substances like herbal products. Results can be obtained by well diffusion assays and by determining minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) using broth dilutions or agar dilutions.
