Salivary anti-Helicobacter pylori positivity among endoscopy patients with chronic liver disease
AbstractIn this study, endoscopy patients with and without chronic liver disease [CLD] were examined and tested for Helicobacter pylori infection by detecting the presence of serum and salivary anti-H. pylori antibody. The validity of these measures was compared with Campylobacter-like organism analysis [gold standard] performed on patients requiring gastric biopsy. Among 114 patients with CLD and 50 without, the commonest endoscopy diagnosis was gastritis [27.2%]. Salivary H. pylori positivity was significantly associated with older age. Salivary anti-H. pylori antibody positivity showed low sensitivity [36.6%] and high specificity [75.8%] in CLD patients

Alimohammadi, H.; Fouladi, N.; Salehzadeh, F.; Alipour, S.A.; Javadi, M.S. (2016-12)We examined the role of Helicobacter pylori infection as a cause of recurrent abdominal pain [RAP] among Iranian children in a population-based case-control study to determine the association between H. pylori infection and RAP among schoolchildren. A total of 1558 children aged 6-13 years were examined. Children with RAP confirmed by the Apley and Naish criteria were selected; 145 cases were selected for inclusion and were compared with 145 healthy children recruited from the same area. Both groups underwent stool antigen testing. The prevalence ...
Rafeey, M.; Nikvash, S. (2007)The study evaluated a non-invasive antigen test of stool samples for the diagnosis of Helicobacter pylori infection in children compared with histopathology of gastric biopsies [gold standard]. The study included 96 children aged 1-5 years old with dyspeptic symptoms referred for endoscopy at Tabriz Children's Hospital, Tabriz, Islamic Republic of Iran from May 2003 to March 2004. Of 62 children who were positive by histology, 34 were H. pylori stool antigen positive and of 34 patients with negative histology, 27 had negative stool test. The ...
