Relationship between Helicobacter pylori Infection and Gastrointestinal Symptoms in Children

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.418
Synopsis: 
In this study, nearly half of the children who had gastrointestinal symptoms had Helicobacter pylori infection and nearly half of the infected children were resistant to the eradication treatment. Not only a successful eradication, but also attempting to eradicate Helicobacter pylori was effective in reducing of symptoms.

ABSTRACT

Objective: We aimed to examine the relationship between Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection and gastrointestinal symptoms, and the efficacy of eradication treatment.

The Efficacy of Quadruple Therapy in the Eradication of Helicobacter pylori in Cases of Duodenal Ulcer

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.516
Synopsis: 
Quadruple treatment has been recommended by Maastrich-IV Consensus for Helicobacter pylori eradication in regions with high clarithromycine resistance rate. However, patients with duodenal ulcer are special populations. Our study showed unsatisfactory eradication success of quadruple treatment in this group.

ABSTRACT

Background: Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is an important cause of duodenal ulcer (DU) and eradication this infection can prevent complication related to DU and recurrence of the DU. Quadruple therapy (QT) is one of the recommended treatment regimen for the H. pylori eradication. But there has not been enough data for impact of the QT on eradication success of the H. pylori in patients with DU. We aimed to investigate success of QT in H. pylori positive patients with DU.

Serious Gastrointestinal Form of Henoch-Schonlein Purpura Induced by Helicobacter pylori Infection Complicated with Bradycardia and Euthyroid Sick Syndrome

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.591

ABSTRACT

Association between Henoch-Schonlein purpura and Helicobacter pylori infection is rarely reported in the literature. We present a case of Henoch-Schonlein purpura with severe gastrointestinal manifestations, bradycardia and euthyroid sick syndrome, were resolution of disease occurred only after the eradication of Helicobacter pylori infection.

The Use of Helicobacter Pylori Stool Antigen Test for the Diagnosis of Helicobacter Pylori in Lagos, Nigeria

Issue: 
Pages: 
33–5
Synopsis: 
The Helicobacter pylori Stool Antigen could be appropriate for the diagnosis and monitoring of Helicobacter pylori in Nigeria due to its relatively affordable cost and availability, unlike its counterpart and gold standard the urea breath test.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: This study was carried out to screen the use of Helicobacter pylori stool antigen (HpSA) tests for diagnosis and monitoring of H pylori in Nigeria.

Methods: Seven hundred and forty participants were enrolled after informed consent was obtained, while 83 came back for a post-eradication test. The stool samples were taken from the patients at endoscopy and tested for HpSA.

Does Helicobacter Pylori Identification in the Mucosa of the Gallbladder Correlate to Cholesterol Gallstone Formation?

Issue: 
Pages: 
428–32
Synopsis: 
Using both standard histology and polymerase chain reaction, H pylori was detectable in a low frequency in the mucosa of the gallbladder and no statistical differences were found between patients with cholesterol gallstones and patients without cholelithiasis. Thus, H pylori does not seem to act as a lithogenic component for cholesterol gallstone formation.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) represents a potential initiator of cholesterol crystallization and it has been proposed that it is related to gallstone formation. In this study, any possible association between the H pylori identification in the mucosa of gallbladder and cholesterol gallstone formation was evaluated.

Prevalence of Helicobacter pylori Infection in Children in the Bahamas

DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.154

Objective: Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) is a common bacterial infection that is associated with significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. This bacterium causes a chronic infection that is causally related to illnesses ranging from gastritis, peptic ulcer disease to gastric cancer. It is generally considered that it is acquired in childhood but the prevalence varies considerably between countries and communities. There are few data on the prevalence of H pylori in the Caribbean and none on the prevalence of H pylori in children in the Bahamas.

Seroprevalence of Helicobacter pylori Infection in Adults in the Bahamas

Issue: 
Pages: 
662–5
Synopsis: 
Helicobacter pylori infection is a common chronic infection in the Caribbean. This study reports the seroprevalence of H pylori in a healthy adult population in the Bahamas
 
ABSTRACT
 
Objectives: A number of studies have evaluated Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) infection in the Caribbean. However, to date there is no available epidemiological data on its occurrence in the Bahamas. Therefore, we determined the seroprevalence of H pylori in a healthy adult population in Nassau, Bahamas.

The Prevalence of Helicobacter pylori Infection in Patients Undergoing Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy in the Turks and Caicos Islands

Issue: 
Pages: 
309–11
Synopsis: 
H pylori infection was common in patients with gastrointestinal symptoms in the Turks and Caicos. However, the prevalence of infection in patients undergoing endoscopy and peptic ulcer disease is lower than in other reports from the Caribbean.

ABSTRACT

Background: Helicobacter pylori infection remains a common problem and previous studies in the Caribbean revealed infection in over 50% of patients undergoing upper endoscopy.

Objective: The present study determined the prevalence of H pylori infection in patients undergoing upper gastrointestinal endoscopy in the Turks and Caicos Islands over a two- year interval.

Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding in Children: The Role of Helicobacter pylori Infection and Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drug Use

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.130
Pages: 
113–6
Synopsis: 
Helicobacter pylori infection and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug usage are frequent in children. They are considered risk factors for gastrointestinal bleeding. Ibuprofen and acetylsalicylic acid intake were found to be significant in the aetiology of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Helicobacter pylori was not found to be significant.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To study the role of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and Helicobacter pylori infection in the aetiology of upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) in children.
