The importance of biopsychosocial factors in the development of duodenal ulcer in a cohort of middle-aged men.
This study prospectively evaluated psychosocial as well as biologic, behavioral, and demographic factors in the development of duodenal ulcer.
Baseline data were collected in 1963 on 8,458 Israeli men over age 40 years who had no history of duodenal ulcer.
The subjects were followed for 5 years, and 254 reported the development of radiographically proven duodenal ulcer.
The average annual incidence was six per 1,000 subjects.
