Caption: Helicobacter pylori. Artwork based on a scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a Helicobacter pylori bacterium. This bacterium was formerly known as Campylobacter pyloridis. This Gram- negative bacillus bacterium is curved (as here) or spiral in shape, with hair-like flagellae (right) for motility. Colonies of H. pylori occur on the stomach mucous membrane in people suffering from gastritis, and this bacteria has been linked to stomach ulcer formation. H. pylori may also be a co-factor for gastric cancer; its presence increases the risk of stomach tumours.
