Clinical and economic impact of “triple therapy” for Helicobacter pylori eradication on peptic ulcer disease in Australia

Triple therapy was extensively used in Australia by 1986 for H pylori eradication after its discovery in 1984 and was critical in reducing the morbidity and mortality associated with this infection.

A causal relationship between Helicobacter pylori and both gastric adenocarcinoma and gastric lymphoma has been established, and its association with some extra-digestive conditions has been suggested.

The Importance of Hormesis to Public Health

Better understanding of this phenomenon will likely lead to different strategies not only for the prevention and treatment of disease but also for the promotion of improved public health as it relates to both specific and more holistic health outcomes.

Current strategies for eradication of paratuberculosis and issues in public health.

How to Unmask the Anti-vaccination “Experts”

“Talk to the mothers of ill children, look at the suffering in their faces, there are very many cases that science ignores”. When you hear words like that, you had better start to worry; they are

Isolated cases? The history and historiography of Australian medical research.

The authors argue that rather than isolation or dependency, Australian medical science has been characterised by a profound interdependence across two centuries of antipodean endeavour.

Pharmacoeconomic comparison of Helicobacter pylori eradication regimens

A pharmacoeconomic comparison of different H. pylori eradication regimens in patients with peptic ulcer disease or chronic gastritis, using real-world cost and effectiveness data confirms the importance of using local pharmaco economic data.

The most-cited MJA article is Cade's ground-breaking report on the effect of lithium in mania, followed by Marshall et al's reports on the role of Helicobacter pylori in gastroduodenal disease in 1985 and 1985.

Pyloric Campylobacter infection and gastroduodenal disease

It is suggested that pyloric Campylobacter infection is a major factor in the causation of dyspeptic disease and peptic ulceration and antibacterial regimens directed against the bacterium may provide a permanent cure for these chronic disorders.

Attempt to fulfil Koch's postulates for pyloric Campylobacter

It is proposed that this disorder may progress to a chronic infection which predisposes to peptic ulceration and be linked to acute pyloric Campylobacter gastritis.
