Abstract

The epidemiology of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection in Ilam city, Western Iran, is not well understood. We conducted the current research to determine the seroprevalence of H. pylori infection in this city. A total of 1102 individuals (661 females and 441 males) older than12 years old were enrolled in the study. The bacterium was detected by the H. pylori stool antigen (HpSA) test. The rate of H. pylori positivity in the sample population was 54.4 (n=600). No statistically significant association was found between gender and the prevalence of H. pylori (P value = 0.21). The highest H. pylori prevalence was observed in the summer (17.6, n= 194); however, no statistically significant relationship was detected between seasonal changes and the incidence of H. pylori infection (P value= 0.30). According to our results, it seems that the prevalence of H. pylori infection is high, especially in summer, in the population of Ilam city. This may become a major health concern in the area. © 2021. All Rights Reserved.
