Neutrons Provide New Approach for Medications to Combat Helicobacter pylori
Fifty percent of the world’s population harbours this bacterium in their stomach: Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). This infection, which also occurs commonly in Germany, can trigger illnesses such as gastritis or stomach cancer. Now an international research team has used neutrons to explain the functionality of an important enzyme in the pathogen’s metabolism. This could serve as a viable target for new medications.

H/D Contrast Variation

Many elements have several stable isotopes. They are chemically identical since they have the same number of protons. However, they differ in the number of neutrons in the atomic nucleus.More
