  This paper will discuss Helicobacter pylori which is a bacterium start in human epithelial cells of the gastrointestinal tract. Its infection is related to many different diseases, such as chronic gastritis, peptic ulcers, gastric lymphoma and adenocarcinoma. The infection by Helicobacter pylori is found more than 50% of the world. It is found deep in epithelial cells that hide mucus in the human stomach, where neutral Helicobacter pylori are prevalent. This bacterium is reported as the leading cause of various gastrointestinal illnesses, chronic gastritis, excretory ulcer, abdominal cancer and gastric mucosa related lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma. In this study for the improvement of two PCR-based techniques for detecting Helical kinds of Helicobacter pylori. Molecular diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori strain by using 16S rDNA PCR amplification and direct examination.
