Background. Systematic research on Helicobacter pylori, when the patient has an intestinal disorder, has a become important. The aim of this preliminary study was to find a relationship between Helicobacter pylory infection and coeliac disease.
Methods .We studied 53 patients affected by coeliac disease over a period of 6 years.Multiple gastric and duodenal biopsies were performed. On every biopsy , histopatologic evaluation and antiendomysial tests were carried out to confirm coeliac disease as well as ureases tests and IgG antibody tests with ELISA in the serum of the patient to diagnose the presence of Helicobacter pylori.
Results. Coeliac disease was confirmed through histological observation and with antibody assay, nevertheless Helicobacter pylory research was negative in every patient.
Conclusions. We supposed that a pre existent alteration of the gastroduodenal mucosa under the effect of glutin in coeliac disease does not affect the Helicobacter pylori infection.
