ABSTRACT
Purpose: Helicobacter pylori infection is common in the developing countries. The cagA gene is a marker of pathogenicity island (PAI) in H. pylori. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of cagA among dyspeptic patients in Bahrain directly from gastric biopsy and stool specimen. Methods: A total of 100 gastric biopsy samples, 16 clinical isolates and 44 faecal specimens were collected from Bahraini adult dyspeptic patients. cagA gene of H. pylori was assessed using polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Results: The cagA gene was detected in 59 (59%) from biopsy specimens, 10 (62%) clinical isolates and in 10 (22.7%) faecal specimens. The detection of cagA positive H. pylori was significantly higher in patients with duodenal ulcer (80%) compared to those with other endoscopic finding (42%) (P<0.05). Conclusions: Using PCR to detect cagA gene directly from biopsy is a rapid and reliable technique. However, using stool specimen for genotyping in our patients showed reduced sensitivity.

    Objective: Helicobacter Pylori (H.pylori) is one of the most important causes of dyspepsia and diagnosis can be made by invasive or non-invasive methods. One of the non-invasive methods, H.pylori stool antigen test (HpSA) is simple, fast and relatively inexpensive. According to this view with...

    Background. It has recently been proposed that disturbed gastric adaptive relaxation may play a role in functional dyspepsia (FD). However, the effect of Helicobacter pylori infection, which may be one of multiple factors associated with FD, on gastric relaxation is not clear. The aim of this...

    A role of LPS in the infections from Helicobacter pylori (H.p.) is still poorly known. In this study, we examined proliferative response of peripheral blood mononuclear leukocytes (PBML) from the children with chronic dyspepsia to H.p LPS in the presence and absence of IL-2 as a T cell factor....

    Reduction in the endoscopic workload by means of case selection based on empiric therapies has been advocated in order to reduce the costs for dyspepsia. The present study compares the efficacy of the "H. pylori — Hptest and treat strategy" with an empiric omeprazole trial. Methods: 219...
