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.
