pylori is not just one organism but is very diverse in form (17) and has several adaptive features for life in the stomach: the enzyme urease to protect itself from acid by creating a cloud of ammonia, a corkscrew-like morphology that allows it to burrow into mucus, and "virulence factors" that allow it to interact closely with the host stomach to downregulate parietal cell acid production and many other functions.
