Primary isolation and detection of Helicobacter pylori from dyspeptic patients: a simple, rapid method
AbstractThe study aimed to develop a rapid and simple method for the primary isolation and detection of Helicobacter pylori from dyspeptic patients. Mucosal antral biopsy specimens were obtained from 136 consecutive dyspeptic patients diagnosed with peptic ulcer by endoscopy at Basra General Hospital, Iraq. From histopathological examination of biopsies, H. pylori was detected in 81 [59.6%] peptic ulcer patients. For bacterial culture, specimens were cultured in parallel on 2 media: the nonselective classic Columbia agar and the selective modified Columbia urea agar [MCUA]. MCUA showed a higher isolation rate than classic Columbia agar [67.6% versus 44.1% of patients], and the results were obtained faster [24 hours versus 5-7 days] with more clear-cut identification

Zahran, S.M.; Hamed, N.A.; Dafrawy, M.; Abdelaziz, H.K.; Morsi, M.G. (2013)To test the role of T helper cell Th1 immunity we recruited 24 patients with idiopathic thrombocytopenia associated with H. pylori seropositivity. They were divided into 2 groups: 12 with immune-mediated thrombocytopenia [Group 1] and 12 with non-immune mediated thrombocytopenia [Group 2]. We also recruited 10 individuals seronegative for H. pylori [Group 3] as controls. Initial platelet count was significantly lower in Group 1 than Group 2. H. pyloriwas eradicated in 10 of 12 patients in Group 1 and in all patients in Group 2. Transient improvement ...
Alizadeh, A.H.M.; Ansari, S.; Ranjbar, M.; Shalmani, H.M.; Habibi, I.; Firouzi, M.; Zali, M.R. (2009)In this cross-sectional study, we evaluated H. pylori seroprevalence and the relevant factors in 1518 people aged > /= 6 years from the general population of Nahavand, western Islamic Republic of Iran. Questionnaires covering sociodemographic variables were completed by interview. Blood samples were taken from each individual. Sera were tested for anti-H. pylori IgG using commercial enzyme immunoassay. Overall, seroprevalence of H. pylori was high, 71.0% [95% CI: 69.0%-73.0%]. There was a gradual increase with age. Based on multivariate adjustment, ...
