Abstract

This article describes the new developments in managing peptic ulcer disease. We discuss the role Heliocobactor pylori plays in peptic ulcer disease patients and how the presence of the organism is detected. The 14C urea breath test can serve as an important diagnostic tool in detecting the organism associated with peptic ulcer.
