Dr. Barry J. Marshall Presents “Helicobacter pylori, Before and After the Nobel Prize” on May 6
Dr. Marshall, clinical professor at the University of Western Australia (together with Dr. J. Robin Warren) was awarded the 2005 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in recognition of the 1982 discovery that a bacterium, Helicobacter pylori, causes one of the most common and important diseases of mankind, peptic ulcer disease, and is a bacteria contributor to gastric cancer. In 1984, while at Fremantle Hospital, Dr. Marshall proved that H. pylori was harmful in a well-publicized experiment in which he drank a culture of H. pylori. Despite widespread skepticism, Dr. Marshall determined that a combination of drugs which killed H. pylori eliminated peptic ulcers permanently.
