Article excerpt

Background: The aim of study was to examine serum lipid level in patients infected with Helicobacter pylori.

Methods: The total number of 700 subjects who underwent health check-up were included in this study. Patients receiv- ing statin and fibrate therapy and diabetic patients were ex- cluded. H. pylori -specific IgG antibody was determined from serum samples by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kit. Patients were divided into 2 subgroups which were H. pylori negative (group 1) and H. pylori positive (group 2).Total cholesterol (TC), LDL-cholesterol and HDL-cholesterol and triglyceride levels were measured in all subjects.

Results: Among 433 (172=36.7% female, 261=63.3% male) studied patients, 113 were in group 1 and and 320 were in group 2. Total cholesterol (178 ± 40 vs 196 ± 44 mg/dl), LDL-C (110 ± 36 vs 128 ± 64 mg/dl) and triglyceride (178 ± 40 vs 196 ± 44 mg/dl) was significantly higher in group 2 than group 1. …
