This article focuses on a study related to acid peptic disease in London, England with ethnic differences and time trends. Gastro-oesophogeal reflux disease (GORD) is uncommon in the east. In western countries, the prevalence of GORD has increased over recent years while that of gastric ulcer (GU) and duodenal ulcer (DU) has decreased. The study aims to determine the effect of ethnicity on prevalence of GORD, DU, and GU and to study the time trends in the prevalence of these conditions in patients presenting for upper gastrointestinal endoscopies.
