Abstract

Aim: A high rate of seropositivity for antibodies against Helicobacter pylori has been found in many extragastrointestinal diseases. In addition, it has been reported that the risk of chronic bronchitis may be increased in subjects infected with H. pylori. This study was designed to determine the H. pylori seroprevalence in patients with and without chronic bronchitis.
