Is H-pylori a parasite? Does treatment for H-pylori "Heliclear" kill off any parasites anyway?

Heliclear contains a combination of three medicines, lansoprazole (a proton pump inhibitor), amoxicillin and clarithromycin (both antibiotics). It is specifically designed to treat infections of th stomach cause by a bacteria, Helicobacter pylori. Although it will treat a number of other infections, it has no activity against parasites.
