Caption

Helicobacter pylori. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a Helicobacter pylori bacterium (formerly known as Campylobacter pyloridis). This gram-negative bacillus (rod- shaped) bacterium is curved (as here) or spiral in shape. Two hair-like flagellae are visible (at left and right). Colonies of H. pylori occur on the stomach mucous membrane in people suffering gastritis, and this bacteria has been linked to stomach ulcer formation. H. pylori may also be a co-factor for gastric cancer as its presence increases the risk of stomach tumours. Magnification unknown.
