Seroprevalence of Helicobacter pylori in Nahavand: a population-based study
提要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, only female sex and age could be considered risk factors

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 ...
