In the last decade, several studies have approached the issue of a potential relationship between Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection and gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD). The different aspects debated were the possibility that the bacterium could have a protective role or worsen the disease or have no relationship at all.
