Answer

In 1983, Warren (a biologist) and Marshall (a clinician) described Helicobacter pylori (HP). At first, they named the bacterium Campylobacter pyloridis. Later, it was named Campylobacter pylori. Since then, a large number of reports have been produced on H pylori and its pathogenetic potential.
