  1. Seroprevalence of Helicobacter pylori infections in a cohort of US army recruits.

    Article - En anglais

    To study the prevalence and risk factors of Helicobacter pylori infection in healthy young adults, sera were collected from a nationwide sample of 404 females and 534 males (mean age, 20.2; range, 17-26 years) at induction into the US Army at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, during the fall of 1990.

    An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (PYLORI STAT, BioWhittaker, Inc., Walkersville, MD) was used to detect H. pylori-specific immunoglobulin G antibodies.

    Demographic data were obtained from a personnel database and by linking US census information to the subject's home address.

    The observed crude seropositivity rate was 26.3% (95% confidence interval 23.2-28.9).
