A unique seaweed extract shows promise for the treatment of Helicobacter pylori-related diseases and gastric cancer, according to new research undertaken at the University of Western Australia.

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a bacteria that infects more than half of the human population worldwide. Infection of this bacteria is a primary cause of chronic stomach inflammation, peptic ulcer diseases and gastric cancers, leading to more than one million deaths per year.

The study took place at the University of Western Australia in the laboratories of Nobel Prize Laureate Professor Barry Marshall, who is recognised for his discovery of H. pylori and its role in gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. The research involved testing fucoidan extracts derived from the Fucus vesiculosus and Undaria pinnatifida species of brown seaweed. These certified organic, high-purity extracts were developed and produced by Australian biotechnology company, Marinova Pty Ltd.
