Project: Diversity, antimicrobial sensitivity and virulence mechanisms of Helicobacter suis, a pathogen in pigs with zoonotic significance
- project duration
- 01-JAN-08 – 31-OCT-14
- Helicobacter suis is the most prevalent gastric non-Helicobacter pylori Helicobacter in humans with gastric disease. This agent has also been associated with gastric ulceration in pigs, but the exact role of H. suis in gastric pathology in pigs is not clear. The genomic diversity, antimicrobial sensitivity and virulence mechanisms of this agent will be studied.
