Long term effects of H.pylori eradication on Gastro intestinal tract microbiome and development of screening system for detection of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase coding genes within feces samples.

The aim of this Project is, within the scope of industrial research, to evaluate the long term effects of H.pylori eradication on GIT microbiome, asses its effects on abundance and prevalence of extended-spectrum b-lactamases coding genes and develop cost effective ESBL screening test prototype. The results acquired through the implementation of this Project shall provide us with enhanced understanding on long term effects of antimicrobial agents on GIT microbiome and development of antibiotic resistance. They shall also contribute to development of National eradication treatment strategy.

The project is non-economic and is in line with the Biotechnology industry. It will be implemented in the "Latvian Biomedical Research and Study Center" and "University of Latvia".

The project is carried out under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Measure 1.1.1.1 “Industry-Driven Research”.

The duration of the project - 01/03/2017 until  29/02/2020  

Project identification no. - 1.1.1.1/16/A/272

The total funding of the project - 648 648, 00 EUR

Principle Investigator - Dr. biol. D. Fridmanis

Collaboration - Latvian Biomedical Research and Study Center
