The following tests are available to identify the presence of the bacteria in the stomach: Serum antibody test: it is performed in the venous blood.

Biomechanical and morphological peculiarities of the rectum in patients with obstructed defecation syndrome Ints Brunenieks, Katrina Pekarska, Vladimir Kasyanov, Valerija Groma The morphological and biomechanical peculiarities of the rectum observed in obstructed defecation syndrome ODS are not completely understood. The biomechanical properties and morphological features of the rectum in patients with ODS in correlation with the status of the enteric nervous system ENS were evaluated.
In Romania, gastric cancer ranks second in terms of incidence amongst digestive cancers, after the colon cancer. Pylori eradication is efficient is performed if performed prior to the onset of precancerous lesions gastric atrophy, intestinal metaplasia.
