Abstract

The use of NSAIDs increases the risk of peptic ulcer 3- and 5-fold in H. pylori-positive and H. pylori-negative patients, respectively. Dyspepsia is a poor predictor of peptic ulcer among patients using NSAIDs, and serologic H. pylori testing and treatment for chronic NSAID users is recommended.
