The Spanish society for digestive pathology (SEPD) is this week offering free Helicobacter pylori tests to anyone attending the international healthcare conference FISALUD in Madrid (December 1-4). The initiative aims to raise awareness of the condition and the ease with which the test is performed - the SEPD is using a noninvasive breath test. The society reports high international interest in diseases of the digestive system, with 50,000 website hits per month, of which half are from within Spain and around 17,000 are from the hispanic community in the US.
