Molecular evidence of Helicobacter suis infection in pigs in Nigeria

May 2018 - Vol 17 Num. 21

Helicobacter suis mainly colonizes the stomach of pigs and occasionally infects humans. It is a prevalent cause of gastritis and gastric ulcers in both species. This study was designed to determine the colonization rate of H. suis in the stomach of pigs in Nigeria. Pig slaughter house surveys were conducted and stomach...
