  1. Helicobacter pylori infection in North-Eastern peninsular Malaysia : evidence for an unusually low prevalence.

    Article - En anglais

    The prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection was determined in peptic ulcer patients, in non-ulcer dyspepsia (NUD) patients, and in the general adult population.

    The H. pylori infection rate ascertained by microbiologic examination of multiple gastric antral biopsy specimens was 50% (17 of 34) in duodenal ulcer (DU), 5% (1 of 22) in gastric ulcer, and 9% (15 of 159) in NUD patients.

    A seroepidemiologic survey showed a prevalence of only 4.2% among 496 blood donors and 4.8% among 921 subjects who attended health screening clinics.

    H. pylori infection is relatively uncommon and does not appear to be the predominant factor in the pathogenesis of peptic ulcer disease in the area.
