OBJECTIVE To comparatively evaluate a new nested set of primers designed for the detection of Helicobacter pylori targeting a highly conserved heat shock protein gene (Hsp60). METHODS A total of 60 subjects having peptic ulcer diseases were tested for the detection of H. pylori using rapid urease test (RUT), histology, culture, and polymerase chain(More)
BACKGROUND Efficacy of Helicobacter pylori stool antigen enzyme immunoassay (HpSA) and stool PCR was evaluated, before and after treatment, in a country with a high prevalence of H. pylori infection. METHODOLOGY A total of 52 patients with dyspeptic symptoms were included in the study. Antral biopsy was collected during pre- and post-therapy periods for(More)
The aim of the study was to see the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori in asymptomatic children and adults by using nested PCR which is considered to be more specific than serological methods. Saliva and stool samples of 137 healthy children (aged 8 months to 16 y) and 108 asymptomatic adults (aged 17-60 y) were collected. PCR with primers targeting Hsp60(More)
The present study was carried out in 208, 8-10 yr old male, rural, primary school children of Kashi Vidyapith Block, Varanasi. These children were examined for anthropometry, soft neurological signs and electroencephalographic pattern. It was found that the presence of soft neurological signs was related to the severity of malnutrition. The relationship(More)
BACKGROUND This aim of this work was to determine the in vitro activity of clarithromycin, amoxycillin, metronidazole and tetracycline against Helicobacter pylori and clonality among resistant and sensitive strains isolated from North India. METHODOLOGY A total of 68 H. pylori isolates from peptic ulcer disease and non ulcer dyspepsia patients were(More)
CONTEXT In Pseudomonas aeruginosa, AmpC β-lactamases are often responsible for high-level resistance to β-lactam antibiotics. The co-production of plasmid-mediated AmpC along with chromosomal Pseudomonas-derived cephalosporinases thus remain a serious clinical concern owing to high resistance spectrum towards antibiotics. AIM The present study was(More)
