The article presents information on abstracts related to gastroduodenal. In an abstract emphasis is given on the long term study of re-infection following successful eradication of helicobacter pylori infection. H. pylori infection is known to cause a number of diseases including peptic ulcer disease and gastric carcinoma. Successful eradication dramatically reduces recurrent ulcer disease. Re-infection rates are likely to be related to the population prevalence of infection. Small, short-term studies suggest annual HP re-infection rates in excess of 1 %. When the researchers previously attempted to study re-infection rates, the majority of "re-infections" occurred within the first year suggesting recrudescence rather than true re-infection. The researchers now report what are likely to be genuine re-infection rates by studying a large cohort of patients over a much longer period.
