Australians keep tight grip on Nobel prize in physiology or medicine

Australians Barry J. Marshall and Robin Warren won the 2005 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for their work on how the bacterium helicobacter pylori plays a role in gastritis and peptic ulcer disease, the Swedish Nobel Assembly said Monday.

The coveted award honoring achievements in medical research opened this year's series of prize announcements. It will be followed by prizes for physics, chemistry, literature, peace and economics.

"Warren, a pathologist from Perth, Australia, observed small curved bacteria colonizing the lower part of the stomach in about 50 percent of patients from which biopsies had been taken," the Nobel Assembly said. "He made the crucial observation that signs of inflammation were always present in the gastric mucosa close to where the bacteria were seen."

Marshall became interested in Warren's findings and together they initiated a study of biopsies from 100 patients, reports the AP. I.L.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
