Helicobacter Pylori (H.Pylori) is gram-negative bacteria found in the stomach. Research has estimated that approximately half the world's population is infected by H.Pylori, making it the most prevalent infection in the world. Over 80% of people infected with H.Pylori will not realize they have it because they will not have symptoms. H.Pylori is known to be a major cause of peptic ulcer disease and is very common, especially in developing countries. Bacteria and viruses are powerful stimulators of the inflammatory process. Research continues to demonstrate a strong link between infective processes (like H.Pylori) and Alzheimer's disease. In May 2008, a special issue of The Journal of Alzheimer's Disease explored the topic of infectious disease as a causative factor for Alzheimer's disease.
