Vietnam's population suffers from HP bacteria

(MENAFN) One of the biggest hospitals in Vietnam reported that around 70% of population are infected with Helicobacter Pylori (HP) bacteria which might lead to duodenal ulcers and stomach cancer.

Another problem the country faces is that he bacteria has developed resistance to many kinds of antibiotics due to abuse of antibiotics among patients, according to the Bach Mai Hospital.

Accordingly, the kinds of medicines are 80-90% effective in treating stomach diseases caused by HP bacteria in many countries, but they are only 50-70% effective in Vietnam.
