Data from India on the acquisition rate of H. pylori infection and reinfection after eradication are scant. AIM To study the rates of acquisition of H. pylori infection and of reinfection after eradication in Indian adult patients. (More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Dental plaque has been suggested as a reservoir for Helicobacter pylori, though data in this regard are conflicting.
