Abstract

The prevalence of H. pylori among our peptic ulcer patients is slightly lower compared to overseas studies but the local trend,when compared indirectly to another previous local study did not appear to have changed much. Reasons for the lower H. pylori infection rate in comparison to overseas studies are discussed. The lower H. pylori prevalence among female gastric ulcer patients may be due to the higher prevalence of NSAID use.
