    • Isolation and identification of Helicobacter pylori from drinking water in Basra governorate, Iraq 

      Al Sulami, A.A.; Al Taee, A.M.R.; Juma'a, M.G. (‎2010)‎
      The mode of the transmission of Helicobacter pylori infection remains poorly understood. A total of 198 samples of drinking water from 22 districts of Basra governorate were collected during the period October 2006 to July 2007. The concentration of residual chlorine was measured and the numbers of total and faecal coliforms were counted. On modified Columbia urea agar, 469 bacterial cultures were obtained, of which 173 isolates were identified. Only 14 isolates were Helicobacter spp., of which 10 were H. pylori [‎2.0% of the total isolates]‎. These ...
    • Presence of Helicobacter spp. DNA in the gallbladder of Egyptian patients with gallstone diseases 

      Ghazal, A.; El Sabbagh, N.; El Riwini, M. (‎2011)‎
      Earlier reports on the detection of Heticobocter DNA in the gallbladder tissue of patients with biliary diseases have shown discordant results. This study aimed to detect the presence of Helicobacter in gallstone, gallbladder tissue and bile specimens from subjects with H. pylori-positive gastritis with cholelithiasis. The presence of H. pylori in antrum biopsies was confirmed by rapid urease test and/or histopathological examination. DNA was extracted from gallbladder, bile and gallstone samples from 50 patients undergoing cholecystectomy. The ...
    • Primary isolation and detection of Helicobacter pylori from dyspeptic patients: a simple, rapid method 

      Al Sulami, A.; Al Kiat, H.S.; Bakker, L.K.; Hunoon, H. (‎2008)‎
      The 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 ...

    • Seroprevalence of Helicobacter pylori in Nahavand: a population-based study 

      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, ...
